From Peep Show to Black Mirror: Jesse Armstrong’s Career

Born in 1972, Jesse Armstrong worked as a researcher for Labor MP Doug Henderson before starting his screenwriting career.

With longtime collaborator Sam Bain, he was a co-creator of Peep Show and wrote for another British comedy duo in Mitchell and Webb.

The pair were also credited with the movie Four Lions, an attack of jihadist terrorism.

Armstrong also collaborated with Armando Iannucci on The Thick of It, as well as the movie spin-off In The Loop and the loosely inspired American adaptation Veep.

In 2011 he wrote an episode of Black Mirror – The Complete History of You – for Charlie Brooker’s acclaimed series.

HBO commissioned Succession in 2017 and the show premiered a year later, claiming its greatest accolades last night.

Armstrong’s show is a portrait of a powerful, backward family struggling for control of a dynastic media empire.

The showrunner spoke out after the series won awards for writing and directing best drama, while star Jeremy Strong took the best actor award.

‘Thank you very much. This is such a very beautiful moment and it’s really sad not to be with the cast and part of the crew to share it with you guys tonight, but this is a great achievement for the whole group, ‘said Armstrong.

His speech was briefly interrupted by a telephone ringing, while Armstrong joked, ‘Room service, probably’, as Kieran Culkin laughed in another video.

“But having been deprived of the opportunity to spend this time with our colleagues and with the cast and crew, I think I might want to do some non-thanks,” Armstrong added.

‘I don’t want to thank the virus for keeping us apart this year. No thanks to Trump for his sloppy and uncoordinated response, no thanks to Boris Johnson and his administration for doing the same in my country, ” he added.

He added: ‘I thank all the nationalist and quasi-nationalist governments in the world that are the exact opposite of what we need right now, and I thank the media moguls who are doing so much to keep them in power. So no thanks. ‘

America and Britain have two of the highest death tolls in the world due to Covid-19 and both countries have been severely criticized for their handling of the crisis.

A survey tracker from YouGov shows that less than 40 percent of people in the UK and US approve of their government’s response, compared to more than 60 percent in Germany, Italy and Canada, among others.

Nice moment: 'Thank you very much. This is such a very beautiful moment and it's really sad not to be with the cast and part of the crew to share it with you guys tonight, but this is a great achievement for the whole group, 'said Armstrong.

After the ceremony ended, Armstrong revealed his festive plans in the UK, which involved grabbing breakfast.

Armstrong added, ‘It’s the kind of party an old person would have’ after the ceremony.

Armstrong’s hit series Succession took home seven Emmys out of 18 nominations in its second season on HBO.
