The company expects to release the first of these projects before the end of this year, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans are still private. Netflix's approach seems much different, and much more direct, though. This is Black Mirror, after all, and it isn't known for its positive outlook on the future of humanity's relationship with technology.
