Charlie Brooker's Gameswipe confirmed

Comedian to pick apart industry on telly.

British comedian Charlie Brooker is poised to tackle videogames in a new TV series called Gameswipe.

Telly companies Endemol and Zeppotron confirmed as much to IncGamers, but said that production is closed and offered no dates nor details on the project.

Gameswipe will follow in the footsteps of Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe and Newswipe. Each picks apart the relevant subject - television and news, obviously - to expose the obsessions and preposterous goings-on of the industries in a scabrous, comic way. They're quite funny.
