In March, Brooker confirmed in an interview with Digital Spy that he was working on new scripted projects.
Channel 4 has now announced that it has ordered his show Black Mirror.
The three-part series, which has been described as "a hybrid of The Twilight Zone and Tales of the Unexpected", focuses on the way technology has changed people's lives.
The series will comprise three standalone episodes and will explore "what if" stories about the impact of computing and the internet.
Brooker, who previously penned the Big Brother zombie show Dead Set, said: "It combines satire, technology, absurdity and a pinch of surprise and it all takes place in a world you almost - almost - totally recognise.
"It changes each week - like the weather, but hopefully about 2,000 times more entertaining. If you don't like it, you will be beaten about the face and neck by Channel 4 executives."
Channel 4's head of comedy Shane Allen described the show as "satirical drama for the social media generation" and said: "Charlie's writing is imbued with a beautiful blend of emotion and intelligence that pulls you into a thrilling projection of themes which surround our everyday. In a world where bloggers can communicate from beyond the grave and a world leader can watch an assassination in real time on the other side of the planet, there is much to say about how we live and what values we share."
Black Mirror will be filmed in the summer and is currently scheduled to air later this year.
