Break the Internet with John Robbins sees the contestants trying to think like a computer as they attempt to guess how the internet handles searches which include wordplay and images.

The new gameshow, which will air on Dave, pits members of the public against each other in a quest to guess how search engines handled a range of questions.

Hosted by Edinburgh Comedy Awards winner John Robbins, the twenty-part series will be appearing on Dave later this year.

"For many years now I've been suspicious that the 'internet' is getting too big for its boots,” said Robbins. “I say it's time to fight back, to reclaim our streets, to enforce our laws, recoup our taxes, and place pornography back on actual shelves in the real world, where it can be controlled, policed, and placed under a copy of The Times before handing to a sympathetic newsagent.”

The series comes from Vice Studios and marks not only the first partnership between UKTV and Vice, but also Vice’s first foray into unscripted formats and entertainment programming.
