Next month DirecTV will be bringing two acclaimed British dramas – Black Mirror and Secret State – to their Audience Network.

‘Black Mirror’ is a contemporary British hybrid of ‘The Twilight Zone’ and ‘Tales of the Unexpected’ with stories that tap into the collective unease about our modern world. Each installment of the six-episode mini-series, which was the winner of the International Emmy Award for Best Mini-Series/TV Movie Series, is a sharp, suspenseful, satirical tale with a techno-paranoia bent that explores our modern reality. The mini-series comes from creator Charlie Brooker and is executive producer by Brooker and Annabel Jones.

‘Secret State’ stars actor Gabriel Byrne as Tom Dawkins, the reluctant hero at the heart of a contemporary conspiracy thriller, who finds himself thrust into the spotlight of front-line politics and risks everything by taking on the might of the Establishment. Following a devastating industrial accident that leaves several people dead and raises awkward questions about the safety procedures of the U.S. petrochemical company involved, Dawkins, a man who has a profound belief in transparency and open government, tackles vested interests, financial and military, both domestic and international, in his pursuit to uncover the truth and get justice for the families affected by the disaster.

Both dramas will debut on Tuesday, November 12 at 9 and 10 PM respectively on the Audience Network available only to DirecTV subscribers.
