TV show to satirise Steve Jobs

A new US comedy series will satirise Apple's co-founder and chief executive, Steve Jobs

Larry Charles, Borat director, has teamed up with "Fake Steve Jobs" blog to develop the show, iCon, for the cable channel Epix.

The show is "a savage satire centering on a fictional Silicon Valley CEO whose ego is a study in power and greed," according to Epix.

Charles, a Seinfeld veteran, is directing the pilot.
"We are attempting to do nothing less than a modern Citizen Kane," Charles said in a statement. "A scabrous satire of Silicon Valley and its most famous citizen."
Dan Lyons, a Newsweek technology consultant who created the fake Steve Jobs blog, will be the writer for the series.
