Chris Morris, creator of the controversial Brass Eye programmes, is to return to Channel 4 in a new series.
Chris Morris' Brass Eye programme sparked a record 2,500 complaints
"We are working with Chris Morris on a long-term project," a Channel 4 spokesman confirmed on Thursday.
He is working with Charlie Brooker, co-creator of satirical website TVGoHome, on a new format, reported the Media Guardian website.
An episode of Brass Eye which satirised media handling of paedophilia sparked a record 2,500 complaints in 2001.
Channel 4 would not reveal the format of Chris Morris' new series or its expected broadcast date.
However Mr Brooker, who also worked with Morris on Brass Eye, told the Guardian that the new series was likely to move away from the spoof news and current affairs format.
"It's got narrative elements," he said. "It's probably not going to be quite what people would expect."
A pilot for the series, to be made by independent TV producer Talkback and TVGoHome company Zeppotron, was reportedly shot last summer.
Chris Morris appeared on BBC Radio 4 series On The Hour and BBC Two's The Day Today before writing Channel 4's Brass Eye and late night Radio One series Blue Jam.
