Nathan Barley v. Chris Morris

The Guardian reports that fake-news genius Chris Morris is collaborating on a new show with Charlie Brooker:

This has led to persistent rumours on internet talkboards and gossip sites that the show will be based around TVGoHome’s character Nathan Barley.

Barley, the star of a fictional TVGoHome docusoap, is a loathsome public school educated, Hoxton-dwelling new media type, obsessed with gadgets and extreme sports.

But given Morris’s fondness for windups and spoofs, this could just as easily be a red herring.

Apparently, Morris and Brooker have collaborated before on smaller segments. Whatever it is, I’m all for it. Fact times Importance equals News!

Gross: The Indian ‘fly boy’ has doctors baffled. ‘Doctors carried out a cystoscopy to clear the boy’s urinary tract, but the treatment has failed because two more flies emerged out of his penis on Monday.’ (aaargh)
