‘Black Mirror’ New Series: Executive Producer Annabel Jones Discusses All-Female Lead Roles

All six episodes have female protagonists.

‘Black Mirror’ series four has finally arrived on Netflix and while there are many things that make the new series pretty special - don’t worry, we’re not about to drop a load of spoilers - there’s one aspect that will delight many fans.

It’s easy to miss but each of the new episodes has a female protagonist, something co-creator Annabel Jones has discussed in a new interview.

The executive producer worked with Charlie Brooker on the series and has told The Hollywood Reporter that they didn’t set out to create an all-female line-up.

This series of ‘Black Mirror’ is the second to be produced by Netflix and bosses will hoping to replicate the success - both in terms of critics and award wins - of the first.

‘San Junipero’, the fourth episode of the previous series, had a particularly impressive impact on fans and reviewers, scooping two Emmy Awards along the way.
