Dave will rebrand as ‘David’ on 18th June, to mark the launch of new series Hoff the Record. The spoof reality series stars David Hasselhoff as a fictionalised version of himself, hoping to salvage his showbiz career in the UK.
The first episode will air on Thursday, 18th June at 9pm and a second series has already been commissioned. “There is a second series, which is really a testament to UKTV and Dave,” said Hasselhoff last night at a launch for the show. “I want to thank those guys, because they took the shot. The best part is now we get a second season – and it’s only going to get better!”
Of the channel rebranding in his honour, Hasselhoff added: “I think it’s fun – I think the Dave channel’s cool.
“When I started watching Dave, I saw lots of shows like Top Gear – and then I saw Top Gear, and then I saw another episode of Top Gear. I now know every gear of every car ever. Hopefully this means they’ll air our show again and again!”
Hoff The Record is set to air over the summer of 2015.
