Charlie Brooker's sci-fi series has become a cult hit in the US since being added to Netflix
A US remake of Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror is in the works.
Brooker’s satirical sci-fi drama, originally broadcast on Channel 4, has built a cult following in the US since being added to Netflix. Now production company Endemol Shine North America has revealed that “there is a plan” for a US version of the anthology series, Variety reports.
The production company’s CEOs did not reveal any further details about the remake, but Brooker has said in the past that he would serve as show runner on any US adaptation of the series.
The three-episode first series of Black Mirror debuted on Channel 4 in 2011, followed by a second series of three episodes in 2013. The show returned last year (2014) for a 90-minute Christmas special starring Jon Hamm and Game Of Thrones actress Oona Chaplin.
Meanwhile, a US remake of the BBC’s hit detective drama Luther is also in the works with Fox ordering a pilot episode earlier this month (January). Fox adapted ITV’s Broadchurch into a US drama titled Gracepoint last year (2014) but the remake has recently been cancelled due to disappointing ratings.
