Black Mirror readies to film third series

Black MirrorThe third series of the critically-acclaimed satire Black Mirror is gearing up to start production at the end of the month.

Now destined for Netflix - the previous two runs and a Christmas special were for Channel 4 - the run comprises 12 episodes.

The production base is at a UK studio; full details on Production Intelligence along with names of the producers, casting director, line producer, location managers, production designer and production co-ordinator.

During the six-month shoot, the production will also take in locations outside the UK: currently on the shortlist are South Africa and eastern Europe and possibly Tenerife.

The subversive dystopian drama comes from creator Charlie Brooker's shingle House of Tomorrow, an indie under the umbrella of Endemol which he launched with Annabel Jones in July 2014. It won an International Emmy in 2012 for Best TV Movie/Mini-series and has garnered critical acclaim for its speculative fictional take on human behaviour amidst the advance of technology.
