Channel 4 has denied suggestions Black Mirror Season 3 wont air in the UK, despite fractured relations with production company Endemol Shine.
Netflix acquired the third season of the sci-fi anthology series last year, though Channel 4 reportedly retained first-look rights to the new season in the UK.
Attempting to dispel rumors that it could lose UK rights to Black Mirror Season 3, the broadcaster’s Chief Creative Officer Jay Hunt told the Guardian:
“Some of our biggest shows are with Shine Endemol. We haven’t suspended working with them.”
A spokesman for Endemol Shine declined to comment, saying:
“We are still in discussions with Channel 4 around Black Mirror in the UK, to comment on these would be commercially sensitive.”
