Here's some cross-company synergy for UKTV. Alan Davies, who fronts As Yet Untitled on Dave, has landed a guest starring role on the second season of their co-production Frankie Drake Mysteries. The 1920s period drama launched on Alibi earlier this year and quickly proved to be a hit; improving the channel's slot-average by 210%. As a result of the strong ratings in both the UK and Canada, UKTV and CBC picked up a ten episode second season, which has now started filming.
