We are huge fans of "The Thick of It" up here at Huffer Towers, and now we're delighted to see that Armando Ianucci has directed a feature film in which the ever-scabrous Malcolm Tucker heads to Washington to lock horns with US military brass, ably played by Tony Soprano James Gandolfini.
Mr X (Meme Huffer's very own TV-industry-independent-production Deep Throat) has just alerted us to the existence of the blog Secret Blog of a TV Controller, a scabrous expose of the supposed inner machinations of the new controller of BBC3, Danny Cohen.
It is very funny, very revealing and very libellous (the names have not been changed to protect the innocent), and full of posts such as My Big Fat Gay 3-hour Brainstorm (in which our auther is pitched a new social-networking web 2.0 dating show called Sit On My Face(book)) and mediatations on being afforded upskirt views of indie producers.
Someone really doesn't like Mr Cohen. And it seems that he keeps his enemies close -our source tells us that much of the detail on the blog (like what he had for lunch on a given day) is totally accurate, and that there is an imminent witch-hunt.
Now, if Mr Cohen was a bit clever, he'd turn this whole debacle into a TV show...
