TALK OF THE TOWN: Black Mirror may return under a new title as Charlie Brooker parts ways with production giant which owns the trademark
Charlie Brooker’s hit show Black Mirror may have to come back for its next series with a new title.
Why? Because Charlie and the show’s co-creator Annabel Jones, have parted company with TV production giant Endemol-Shine, which owns the trademark on the Black Mirror name.
I gather that though there is no dispute, talks about getting the rights are going nowhere fast, despite both Netflix and the producers said to be keen on making new episodes.

A source at Endemol says: ‘Those conversations are very much ongoing. I’d never say never.’
If they can’t secure the name, Charlie and Annabel will have to come up with something different but similar… so is it time for a new series of Black Wardrobe Door?
Comedian Katherine Ryan admits she is too close to her 11-year-old ‘sisterly’ daughter Violet
Comedian Katherine Ryan admits she is too close to her 11-year-old ‘sisterly’ daughter Violet, who has been snooping on her mum’s phone messages and misinterpreting them as sex texts!
One, sent to her husband Bobby while he was in the study upstairs and she was in the kitchen, read: ‘When Violet falls asleep, I’ll come upstairs and we’ll do it.’
Violet read the text – and promptly burst into tears.
Katherine whose invitation had been eagerly accepted by Bobby – Violet’s stepdad – was referring to recording a podcast in the study.
Katherine said: ‘It’s disgusting when your guardians have sex. We don’t even have sex at night.
‘But I did have to discipline Violet for purposely snooping – I expect a level of trust.’
Katherine, 37, entered into a civil partnership with her on-off childhood sweetheart Bobby Kootstra in 2019 and has written a hit Netflix series based on her unusual family life.
