CHARLIE BROOKER GETS ‘WIPED’ THIS CHRISTMAS ON BBC FOUR

Zeppotron, a UK leader in entertainment and comedy programming, today announced that it has been commissioned by Cheryl Taylor, BBC Controller of Comedy to produce Charlie Brooker’s 2011 Wipe for BBC Four.

‘Wipe' returns for its annual Christmas shindig with an hour-long round-up of the events that have happened in the world of news, television, games and film over the past 12 months.

And what a year it's been...Look back and laugh at a time when The News of the World still existed and no-one was bothered about Pippa Middleton's backside. Pine for the days before the August riots when all we had to complain about was the weather. Can you remember what was on digital TV before scripted-reality shows? No? Even if you can, with contributors including Doug Stanhope, Adam Curtis and Brian Limond you should just watch this.

Charlie Brooker comments: "God knows what we're going to cover in this - as everybody knows, hardly anything happened this year."

Charlie Brooker's 2011 Wipe will be Executive Produced for the BBC by Chris Sussman, Executive Editor Comedy and will be Executive Produced by Zeppotron's Managing Director Annabel Jones. The Series Producer is Alison Marlow.
