Over the course of next few years, Charlie’s career developed when he joined television as a satirist. He has also worked with the leading English publication The Guardian and as one of the four creative directors of the company ‘Zeppotron’. He has been a science fiction lover ever since he was a kid and remained fascinated with the ‘doomsday’ aspects of the world destruction. This fascination led him to write ‘Dead Set’, an apocalyptic zombie series, later in his career. The limited series ended up receiving a BAFTA nomination for Best Drama Serial. In December 2011, ‘Black Mirror’, a science fiction anthology series debuted on Channel 4 to stupendous reviews. After two successful seasons on television, Netflix picked up the series for a third one and the fourth and latest season debuted on the video streaming platform in December 2017.
