'Black Mirror' creator: The problem isn't tech, it's us The Netflix series “Black Mirror” has a chance of snagging a few Emmys for its third season. The Twilight Zone-esque series about the black mirrors in our lives – those screens we’re addicted to – was submitted for consideration in the TV movie category. Creator Charlie Brooker says he thinks humans are still trying to figure out how to harness the power of technology for good. The show runners aren’t trying to scare away people from technology.

In 'Speechless,' Scott Silveri combines comedy, family & disability Scott Silveri has written and produced sitcoms for more than 20 years. In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
