Coming Soon: Steve Jobs, the Sitcom



Fake Steve creator Dan Lyons just signed a deal to bring Steve Jobs to another small screen near you.

The half-hour series called “iCon” is billed by the presser as “a savage satire centering on a fictional Silicon Valley CEO whose ego is a study in power and greed.”

Making sure the barbs prick will be the job of Larry Charles, director of “Borat” and  “Religulous.” The single-camera show to be aired on cable channel Epix may borrow something in style from his work as writer and producer of “Seinfeld” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

Charles said, “We are attempting to do nothing less than a modern ‘Citizen Kane.’ A scabrous satire of Silicon Valley and its most famous citizen.”
