BBC Four orders Charlie Brooker show

Review of 2011

Charlie Brooker is to host a satirical review of 2011 for BBC Four.

The channel has commissioned a one-off special, Charlie Brooker’s 2011 Wipe, to look at news, television, games and film over the past 12 months.

Contributors to the show, to be made by Brooker’s company Zeppotron, will include comics Doug Stanhope and Limmy.

Meanwhile Brooker’s ‘darkly comic’ series Black Mirror – likened to a British Twilight Zone - is coming soon to Channel 4.
