Blogging prostitute TV show

British TV Channel 4 is to dramatize Belle De Jour. The - possibly fake - blog of a London prostitute has already been adapted into a book. I say bring on 'Rebecca's Pocket the movie' and 'Doc Searls the musical'.

It would be an appropriate comment on our cultural times if the first blog (AFAIK) to be made into a TV show turned out to be fictional. To paraphrase Jean Giraudoux, the secret of success is reality; if you can fake that, you've got it made. Well, reality and lots of sex, I guess.

"The usual story: impoverished graduate in depressing London bedsit seeks career with integrity or, failing that, a fat pay-cheque."
In which our plucky young heroine invokes Occam's razor with regards to the authenticity of her anonymously-penned working life.

If I were rich, I'd hire Terry Colon to produce a Suck television cartoon. Just for me.

I think Eurotrash has the skinny on Belle Du Jour.

I'd thought that it was Rowan Pelling who is, IMHO, the most sexy woman in the UK.

Incidently, Champion denied it didn't she?
