Charlie Brooker has revealed he is working on a new show – “a cross between Screenwipe and more scripted elements”.

The columnist and presenter of telly-bashing triumphs like Newswipe, Screenwipe and You Have Been Watching said he already had a concept in mind.

The 39-year-old said in an interview with Shortlist magazine that: “I want to do another scripted TV show. I think I’m supposed to be doing one next year. Doing Dead Set was a miserable experience, but I was glad I did it.

“You’re creating a little world, which is fun. I’m doing something which should be interesting, I don’t really want to jinx it, but it’s a sort of cross between Screenwipe and more scripted elements.

“But that’s not until far, far into the future. I couldn’t be more cryptic or dull.”

In 2008, Brooker penned Dead Set, a BAFTA nominated zombie drama set in the Big Brother house.
