Channel Four Fights To Keep Charlie Brooker’s ‘Black Mirror’ | TV News

Channel 4

 

There’s trouble in paradise for Channel 4 and Endemol Shine, relations between the two almost breaking over the right to broadcast Charlie Brooker’s show Black Mirror in the UK. The acclaimed Channel 4 drama, which began in 2011, was bought by US streaming service Netflix last September in a deal worth an estimated $40m.

 

Under the deal, Channel 4 believed it still had rights to broadcast the drama, that same right not guaranteed by Endemol Shine – the merging of Endemol and Fox-owned Shine. However, nine senior executives have left the merged group over the past 15 months, raising questions over who is leading the development of the future projects.

 

A spokesman for Endemol Shine said:

 

“We are still in discussions with Channel 4 around Black Mirror in the UK, to comment on these would be commercially sensitive”.
