Charlie
Brooker

The famously acerbic Brooker came to the attention of the U.K. as a journalist, presenter, actor and writer, most notably of the Channel 4 sci-fi series “Black Mirror.” Netflix has since taken the anthology show and turbocharged it for streaming audiences, winning six Emmy Awards (over and above its seven noms) in the process. A “Twilight Zone” for the digital generation, “Black Mirror” experiments with interactivity and delves into dark, and sometimes lighter, corners of alternate realities. But mostly it has elevated Brooker into the top tier of TV writers globally and earned him five Emmys. From 2014-2020, he and frequent collaborator Annabel Jones ran the U.K.-based, Endemol Shine-backed shingle House of Tomorrow to develop TV and films for the U.K. and international markets.
