Al Murray is taking his pub quiz Compete For The Meat to digital channel Dave.
The broadcaster has commissioned eight hour-long episodes of the anarchic pub quiz, which has previously been performed at the Edinburgh Fringe.
The show will debut on Dave in a 10pm slot from mid- May.
Jane Rogerson, director of commissioning at Dave’s parent company UKTV, said: ‘Al Murray is one of comedy’s greats and I’m delighted that we’ve been able to secure such an innovative and funny show for Dave’
Richard Allen-Turner, of makers Avalon Television, added: ‘We have all the ingredients for a cracking entertainment series – one of the county’s most loved comics, an excellent broadcasting channel and above all, a frozen chicken as top prize.’
Al Murray’s Compete For The Meat will be produced by Matt Nida, who previously worked on Big Fat Quiz of the Year for Channel 4 and directed by Brian Klein, whose credits include Top Gear.
