We're going to get semi-fictionalised Hoff action in 2015
David Hasselhoff will be hitting Dave with a brand new, six-part spoof reality TV show set to air in 2015. The show will feature a semi-fictionalised Hoff and has been described to be akin to Curb Your Enthusiasm in style.
David Hasselhoff's new show is set to hit Dave in 2015
There are three distinct possibilities for the Hoff’s new comedy venture: the show will be genuinely funny, garner critical praise and get a second season before the first one is out, probably on another network; or it’ll be unintentionally funny and get laughs because it’s a bit naff; or it’ll be the horrible, slow death of a cult hero. We’ve a horrible feeling the latter might be in store.
"When I made Baywatch I dreamed of one day having my own show on a channel named after me," Hasselhoff said in a statement. "Hoff the Record is coming soon to the UK, only on Dave. They did name the channel after me, right?"
Executive Producer Krishnendu Majumdar of Me & You Productions added: "We grew up watching David Hasselhoff on TV so we are thrilled to be working with such a legend and are amazed that he is game to play a jaw dropping version of himself for us. This is our first series for Dave and it's great to be on such a supportive broadcaster making an ambitious cutting edge comedy series."
UKTV's Commissioning Editor Iain Coyle said: "We are delighted to be working with a living legend. The Hoff is unique and so is this show; funny, clever and bizarre - in a good way. I can't wait."
