“Black Mirror” producers Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones have stepped down from their U.K.-based production company House of Tomorrow.
Brooker and Jones launched the label at Endemol Shine UK in 2014, with Brooker serving as creative director and Jones as managing director. In the years since, the duo has produced the three Netflix seasons of “Black Mirror,” as well as the interactive movie “Bandersnatch.”
According to Deadline, which first reported the news, Brooker and Jones first resigned last year, with their official exit coming Friday. The duo is said to be in talks with Netflix for a new overall deal. Representatives for Netflix and Endemol Shine declined to comment.
Last fall, Banijay Group, the French production group behind “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and “Survivor,” announced its acquisition of Endemol Shine, which also produces shows like “Peaky Blinders” and “MasterChef,” in a deal worth $2.2. billion.
The mega-merger, which is awaiting regulatory approvals, is expected to close later this year and will create an international powerhouse, with the new firm enjoying a larger content catalog than international giants like BBC Studios.
