Viewers will have a say in how the plot of an upcoming episode of "Black Mirror" unfolds.

According to Bloomberg, sources say that the episode, in the upcoming season, will be one of several upcoming specials that let viewers choose the next storyline in a TV series or movie.

"Black Mirror" is an optimal choice to launch the initiative because the "Twilight Zone"-style drama focuses on the way technology has infiltrated modern life. 

Netflix has dabbled in the "Choose Your Own Adventure" style of TV episodes in its children's programming, including "Puss in Book," in which viewers choose which opponents the hero squares off against.
