Dave has commissioned new factual entertainment series Big Zuu’s Big Eats, which will be hosted by grime artist and DJ Big Zuu.
The ten-part series sees Zuu take his passion for cooking on the road, with each episode following Zuu as he cooks up made-to-order dishes for a famous comedian on tour in the UK.
Comedians making an appearance this series include, Rosie Jones and Desiree Burch.
Big Zuu described hosting his own TV show as “a dream come true”. He added: “I’ve grown up obsessed with watching cooking programmes and making homemade food, so to now be able to do that on TV is a surreal feeling.
“I’m a massive fan of the channel Dave and I can’t wait to start filming!”
Natalie Rose, UKTV commissioning executive, commented: “Big Zuu is just the kind of extraordinary raw talent we’ve been looking for.
“Bags of charisma, effortless charm, infectious humour and true authenticity. As a touring artist, he acutely understands life on the road, and the instant gratification delicious food brings.
“All of which make his partnership with some of the UK’s finest comics that more exciting.”
Produced by Boomerang, the series joins other recent factual entertainment commissions by Dave, which also include Eddie Eats America and Expedition with Steve Backshall.
Big Zuu’s Big Eats will air on Dave in early 2020.
