Black Mirror Special To Feature Mad Men and Game of Thrones Stars

September 30th, 2014 by Todd Black Comments

The “dystopic anthology” series Black Mirror is set to return this December with a holiday special episode. And in it features some well known names.

The special begins filming this week, and it will feature three interwoven stories told over 90 minutes. All of which will be connected through Jon Hamm (Mad Men). Whose character is describe as a “Yuletide techno-paranoia”. Interesting.

Jon Hamm himself had this to say about the special:

“I am beyond thrilled to be a part of the Black Mirror Christmas Special. I have been a massive fan of the show since its inception. Its dark humour and intelligent observation of our society and values hooked me deeply as a viewer and I’m honoured that Charlie and the rest of the creative team have asked me to participate in wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas.”

Also in the special will be Game of Thrones Star Oona Chaplin.
