UKTV today announces the return of critically-acclaimed Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled (8x60') for a seventh series on its award-winning entertainment channel Dave. The relaxed chat show format is produced by Phil McIntyre Television and will air on Dave in early 2023.
Alan Davies will be returning to the table to host a collection of captivating conversations, full of stories from the world of comedy and entertainment. He will be accompanied by four guests from the world of comedy and entertainment. Each episode will follow the discussions between Alan and his four guests, and the only real agenda is that they must create a title for the episode before it ends.
Last on air in 2021, Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled hosted a mix of high-profile stars with up and coming talent, offering a much-needed platform for new comedians. Guests included Joel Dommett, Rosie Jones, Dara O'Briain and Lee Mack alongside Babatunde Aleshe, Sara Pascoe and Thanyia Moore all sharing stories from trousers falling down in the petrol station to getting locked out the house with the cat.
The seventh series of Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled is commissioned for UKTV by Mark Iddon, commissioning editor, UKTV and ordered for Dave by Cherie Cunningham, channel director. Lucy Ansbro will executive produce for Phil McIntyre Television, alongside Mark Iddon for UKTV. Lindsay Jex is series producer.
Alan Davies said,
I'm very excited to be back around the Untitled table with assorted raconteurs, wits and blabbermouths old and new.
Mark Iddon said,
As Yet Untitled is such a joy to make and we can't wait to get Alan sat back at that table alongside a new roster of as-yet-unbooked guests
Cherie Cunningham said,
As Yet Untitled's laid back format is a hit with Dave viewers and it's a pleasure to welcome Alan Davies back for more.
Lindsay Jex said,
We love making this series with the UKTV team. Alan is an absolute joy to work with, he's warm, engaging and has such a talent for eliciting hilarious stories from whomever is sat around his table.
Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled returns to Dave in early 2023, joined by the return of hit UKTV Original series Meet the Richardsons for its fourth series and brand new UKTV Original series World's Most Dangerous Roads. All of these programmes will be available to catch up on UKTV Play.
