DESCRIPTION: (from DirecTV's press release, October 2013) DirecTV's Audience Network continues to provide viewers with unconventional, provocative programming with the addition of two celebrated British series, the critically acclaimed, award-winning Black Mirror and the conspiracy thriller Secret State, which will premiere Tuesday, Nov. 12 at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. ET/PT respectively. From creator Charlie Brooker (Brass Eye, Dead Set), Black Mirror is a contemporary British hybrid of The Twilight Zone and Tales of the Unexpected with stories that tap into the collective unease about our modern world. Each installment of the six-episode mini-series is a sharp, suspenseful, satirical tale with a techno-paranoia bent that explores our modern reality. Black Mirror presents a world where technology has transformed almost every aspect of daily life. Every hour-long, stand-alone episode of the satirical drama features a different cast and provides a social commentary on today's cultural and technological trends.
