Black Mirror creators discuss Hang the DJ

The creators and star of Black Mirror Season 4's best reviewed episode talked to the Hollywood Reporter about the making of the episode.

Charlie Brooker and executive producer Annabel Jones on redefining romantic comedies:
"Hang the DJ" embodies the most recognizable of romantic comedy tropes as a commentary on online dating. And it's timely ending is all the more satisfying given the female protagonist."

Actress Georgina Campbell on the darker side of the story:

"The idea of option paralysis and having too many options at your fingertips almost jolts your thinking about how online dating can be quite harmful. That means you’re perhaps not taking the time to get to know people properly or have a proper lasting relationship. Where you’re not giving enough of chance to someone or not spending your energy on one person, and unable to make that connection you are wanting to make. I really haven’t seen anything like 'Hang the DJ' yet."
