"Without questioning it, technology has transformed all aspects of our lives; in every home; on every desk; in every palm -- a plasma screen; a monitor; a smartphone -- a Black Mirror reflecting our 21st century existence back at us," Netflix said in a release.

It'll also be our first dose of Black Mirror's dark world since last December's interactive Netflix movie Bandersnatch, which was like a digital version of a choose-your-own-adventure book.
