UKTV’s Dave channel has given the green-light to a new six episode series fronted by comedian Dave Gorman.
Titled Dave Gorman: Modern Life Is Goodish, is loosely based on Gorman’s critically acclaimed live show Powerpoint Presentation. The series will see Gorman using his own unique blend of stand up & visual storytelling where he’ll be sharing his observations and venting his frustrations across all six episodes. Liberty Bell is producing, with Nick Martin and James Fidler serving as producers. The executive producers are Jamie Isaacs and Iain Coyle. Paul Wheeler is attached to direct.
“Continuing our drive for distinctive content, this is a wonderfully innovative comedy format that takes the best of Dave Gorman’s brilliant stand up and adds additional layers that will really bring it to life for TV”, said Senior Commissioning Editor for Dave Richard Watsham, who commissioned the series. “I’m very excited that more people will get to see just how good Dave is.”
Executive Producer Jamie Isaacs commented: “We are delighted to be working with Dave Gorman on this show – he is a unique voice in comedy and his intellectual curiosity and sense of fun make him a perfect guide to the countless questionable things we’re all exposed to and just seem to accept as ok.”
While Steve North, General Manager of Dave, added: “We’re proud to have our own specially commissioned Dave Gorman series exclusive to Dave. He’s a great addition to a growing list of top names to work with us which this year alone includes the likes of Dara O Briain, Alexander Armstrong and Ross Noble. We want to be the place for the very best comedy talent to come and do their most exciting work. ”
