UKTV’s channel Dave has commissioned a sixth series of  Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled (10×60’). The chat show format, produced by Phil McIntyre Television, will air on Dave in Spring 2021.

Last on air in 2017, Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled used a mix of high-profile stars with up and coming talent. Guests included Stephen Fry, Catherine Tate and Katherine Ryan plus Lou Sanders, Lucy Beaumont and Romesh Ranganathan, all sharing funny stories about everything from brushes with royalty to bizarre encounters and an insight into life on the comedy road.

Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled is produced by Phil McIntyre Television. It is commissioned for Dave by head of comedy Iain Coyle and ordered by Dave channel director Luke Hales. Richard Watsham is UKTV’s director of commissioning and Steve North is genre general manager for comedy and entertainment. Lucy Ansbro will exec produce for Phil McIntyre, alongside Iain Coyle for UKTV. Lindsay Jex is series producer.

The episodes will record in December and January at The Roundhouse in Camden.

Iain Coyle said: “I love this show, it’s always warm, engaging and hilarious. Alan has such a gift for teasing brilliant stories and humour out of people, it always makes me want to be around the table with them.”

Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled returns to Dave in Spring 2021, joining brand-new UKTV Original series Mel Giedroyc: Unforgivable and the third series of Hypothetical with Josh Widdocombe and James Acaster. Christmas specials of hit UKTV Original series Meet the Richardsons and Big Zuu’s Big Eats air this week on Dave.
