We are looking for innovative formats that embody Dave tonality. They must help to differentiate us from other channels and broaden potential audiences. We want our originations to stand out amongst a schedule packed with well-known and much loved brands. We want to explore ambitious, noisy, large scale fact ent shows, fresh takes on formats, and scripted comedy.
- Ideas that really stand out on the EPG
- Passion projects with A list comedy talent
- Fast paced fact ent formats for 8pm
- Original and exciting comedy entertainment formats for 9pm
- Scripted comedy
- Projects with dual screen/play along potential
- Exciting big scale events (but with repeatability)
Previous hits on Dave have included: Dara O Briain's Go 8 Bit, Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled, Taskmaster, Red Dwarf, Dave Gorman Modern Life is Goodish, Crackanory, Red Bull Soapbox and UK & Celebrity Storage Hunters.
Target audience: male, 16-34, ABC1 - young, upmarket men, but mustn't alienate females (60% of the audience are male)
Slots: Stand out, noisy commissions for weekdays at 9pm and 10pm or cheaper content at 8pm
Duration: 60' and 40' for peak. 60' and 30' for shoulder peak
