Gugu Mbatha-Raw cast as lead for Netflix's Black Mirror revival

01.18.2016

Check out BEYOND THE LIGHTS, if you haven't already (it's currently streaming on Netflix), and once you've done that, you'll know what the talent of actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw is all about. Then you'll also understand my excitement over hearing she's been cast as a lead for one of the episodes of Netflix's revival of BLACK MIRROR, the cult sci-fi anthology series with a technological tilt that aired on the BBC.

Last year, Netflix announced they'd be moving ahead with 12 new episodes, and now they'd confirmed that Mbatha-Raw, in addition to Mackenzie Davis, will be starring in one of the episodes which Owen Harris will be directing. Details of their roles or of the nature of the episode are expectedly under wraps, but word of their involvement period gives me confidence that this run of BLACK MIRROR is in good hands.

If Charlie Brooker's still involved I'm sure it'll be worth watching (first two series were produced by Channel 4 in the UK, nothing to do with the BBC) - Netflix seem to really have it together with the content they're producing, and I can see why they'd want to develop this series - surprised Channel 4 let it go to be honest, but as they're a 'not-for profit' organisation it's possible Netflix was just willing to put up more money to secure the rights. Regardless, the more quality content

I thought Beyond the Lights was terrible. I also don't have much faith in this Black Mirror revival. Why mess with a good thing? This show should have just stayed on Channel 4.
