20 March 2013 1:01 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Showbiz gossip website magazine will feature contributions from The Power of Nightmares documentary-maker Adam Curtis

Popbitch, the showbiz gossip website, is to launch a paid-for online magazine that will feature contributions from The Power of Nightmares documentary-maker Adam Curtis.

The site, which is co-owned by Camilla Wright, will launch the paid-for app in May offering longer reads alongside Popbitch's trademark online celebrity gossip and weekly newsletter. Popbitch's app will be produced on either a monthly or twice monthly basis.

The new digital magazine will have creative input from Curtis, whose other polemical BBC documentaries include The Mayfair Set and The Century of the Self.

His first contribution is an online video, Popbitch: the next generation, made in collaboration with Brass Eye and South Park writer Jane Bussman, promoting the app and accompanying Kickstarter funding drive that launched on Tuesday and is seeking to raise £25,000 in the next month for creative projects. »
