The authors of American Psycho and Trainspotting are teaming up to create a new satirical show.

The Hollywood Reporter says Bret Easton Ellis and Irvine Welsh are in talks to bring American Tabloid to life for British company Burning Wheel Productions.

As you might guess from the title, the series will paint a satirical picture of journalism.

In the producers’ words, it will follow a “rambunctious cavalcade of pranksters, con men and rapscallions — in other words, journalists — being brought together from across the globe to change not only the landscape but the power of the press forever from scandalous rumor to political puppetry.”

Details of the deal haven’t been hammered out yet, so we can’t tell you exactly how to plan to watch it, if you’re so inclined.
