David Hasselhoff is to star in a 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'-style semi-improvised comedy on Dave.

Called 'Hoff the Record', it will follow a fictionalised version of Hasselhoff – called The Hoff in the show – as he moves back to the UK to get his career back on track.

The series will be filmed in the UK as well as overseas. "Established comedy talent" will star alongside Hasselhoff in the show, though as yet no names have been confirmed.

David Hasselhoff said in a statement: "When I made 'Baywatch' I dreamed of one day having my own show on a channel named after me. 'Hoff the Record' is coming soon to the UK, only on Dave. They did name the channel after me, right?"

The show is produced by Me & You Productions. Executive producer Krishnendu Majumdar added: "We grew up watching David Hasselhoff on TV so we are thrilled to be working with such a legend and are amazed that he is game to play a jaw-dropping version of himself for us."

He described 'Hoff the Record' as an "ambitious cutting-edge comedy series."

UKTV's commissioning editor Iain Coyle described the show as "funny, clever and bizarre – in a good way."

"I can't wait," he added.

The show was originally made as a pilot for BBC2. BBC Worldwide co-developed and co-funded the project and will take the international distribution rights.

Six 30-minute episodes will air on Dave next year.
