Netflix is working on a choose-your-own-adventure Black Mirror episode

While previous titles in Netflix's Choose Your Own Adventure formula have been season-long adventures, this Black Mirror venture will only last a single episode that, according to Bloomberg, will be part of the show's fifth season that's due to come out in December. Black Mirror first aired on BBC before making the transition to Netflix.

Though details about the episode are scarce, Black Mirror viewers will reportedly be able to influence the storyline of the installment. The Shrek spinoff Puss in Book allowed the viewer to make several choices for the titular Puss in Boots, including whether he visited Sinbad or Snow White, and whether Goldilocks' three bears were friendly or antagonistic. The fifth season of the show is expected to be released in December. What better way to one-up the previous Black Mirror episodes that explore the social implications of new technologies than by introducing a new technology to the show itself?

Former journalist Charlie Brooker created "Black Mirror" in 2011 for the British TV network Channel 4 and oversaw four seasons alongside Annabel Jones. All 19 current episodes of the anthology series are now streaming.

The demining comes amid resumed diplomacy over North Korea's nuclear weapons program after weeks of stalemated negotiations. Mines dislodged by flooding and landslides have occasionally caused deaths in front-line areas in South Korea.


The team Netflix has teamed up with The Los Gatos on the project.

Netflix has been developing interactive programming for a while now. It appears that the rollout was a success since they're moving forward with more mature original content. That will be the real test, but for now it certainly seems like a good idea, especially when watching with a large group of people. Stay tuned to your own black mirrors for more info in the coming months. But it's definitely new for Netflix and modern TV in general. However, if you're not living in fear of those things, then Netflix's foray into interactive television will be considered yet another prospective bellwether multimedia offering that's set to blow your mind.
