Channel 4 has commissioned a one-off comedy special on the phone hacking scandal, due to be broadcast later this year.
The working title is Hacks and it’s set in a fictional newspaper where anything goes if it means getting a story.
Guy Jenkin, who co-created Drop The Dead Donkey, is currently working on the script.
Along with the Ab Fab specials, it looks like there’s some great TV comedy about hacks and flacks coming up.
(I wonder who will be first to dramatise the riots.)
