This raises the question if one of these AI tools, ChatGPT, could write Netflix shows. The creator of a Netflix show, Black Mirror, has an answer for it. 

ChatGPT is an AI tool that makes the work easy. Even Ryan Reynolds once used the tool to write a commercial for his Mint Mobile, too. As much as it is threatening to the writers’ jobs, the Black Mirror creator, Charlie Brooker, experimented with the tool. Apparently, he tried to write an episode of the Netflix Original. As he shared with Empire Magazine, the results were not as satisfactory as he thought. At first, the content seemed reasonable. However, as he read it again, as he admitted, “but on second glance, is sh*t.”

So, it was not an awful experience after all. Brooker revealed there was no point in making an anthology if he could not break his own rules. The Black Mirror team is gearing up for the season. Meanwhile, the show’s creator got an accurate evaluation of his own show from ChatGPT.
