Fascinating ‘Bandersnatch’ featurettes reveal how the most ambitious ‘Black Mirror’ episode was made

“There were points where in working stuff out, it got like trying to do a Rubik’s cube in your head, and I had to literally get up from my desk and kind of walk around the house holding my head.”

According to Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker, Bandersnatch was as mind-boggling to make as it was to watch—and he’s got the behind-the-scenes footage to prove it.

Just days after Bandersnatch‘s successful post-holiday streaming debut, Netflix has begun publishing peeks into the interactive movie’s making-of process. From producer Annabel Jones lamenting scrapping her production plan on the first day of filming to snapshots of Brooker’s elaborate story boards, the details in these clips explain some of how the ambitious (and experimental) production was pulled off, giving viewers brand new insight into the latest Black Mirror experience.

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is now streaming on Netflix.

Space Force will undoubtedly be steeped in political satire, given its premise, but just like The Office that came before it, Space Force is described as a workplace comedy. No word yet on whether there will be any budding romances between coworkers, or what exactly Carell’s role will be.

We do know that Carell is going to be making a pretty penny on this show according to a report from The Hollywood Report, which claims the star’s salary is record-setting and likely beating out the salary of the stars of The Big Bang Theory, each of whom were taking in $1 million per episode……………………………………………………….”
