An artist's impression of the kind of thing that we're talking about

The production company behind Big Brother is soon to unveil a new concept in TV programme making.

In a radical move the plan will involve hiring scriptwriters, actors, production technicians, a producer and director.

Kurt Reply, spokesman for broadcaster Enditall, told us:

"What we intend to do is commission a script and once that's done we will hold casting sessions (old TV speak meaning hire) for actors to play the roles as detailed in the script. Now here's the clever bit:

"We get all the production technicians together in the one place with the actors, we hire cameras and get the actors to pretend that they are the characters in the script; they say all the words and do all the actions etc. We then shoot (more old TV speak meaning film) all this, take it to a studio to edit it and hey presto! We have a new type of show"

The Spoof believes that it might be difficult to find a market for such a show. Our entertainment correspondent, Oscar Bafta, says:

"To me this sounds suspiciously like a drama and quite frankly I don't think the nation has a taste for this kind of thing any longer"

But Enditall is adamant that at least it is going to have a go and see what happens.
