These days, it seems like a lot of people get a TV show for reasons unknown, and then try to make a name in some kind of industry, often fashion. But at least Simon Doonan knows that it should probably be the other way around. WWD reports that Simon's memoir, Nasty: My Family and Other Glamorous Varmints, is being turned into a TV show on BBC 2, and will be produced by the same people that brought us Absolutely Fabulous and The Office. But the show won't be totally factual, just based on Simon's childhood in industrial Reading, leading up to his search for glamour in London. Expect to see SImon fleeing from police in Vivienne Westwood bondage pants. The show debuts this fall, so casting and scriptwriting have got to be in full swing. Hopefully, this program will work out a lot better for the BBC than Lily Allen's failed Lily Allen and Friends. So who will play Simon? Not even Simon knows that yet, but we're hoping BBC 2 has Rhys Ifans on speed dial...
