Actor and presenter Joe Tracini is to present a new 1x60' documentary for Channel 4 on his diagnosis with Borderline Personality Disorder.

The programme, described as "genre-busting" will see the online sensation mix documentary with scripted comedy as he invites the cameras into his world and introduces viewers to 'Mick', the voice inside his head.

Joe said: "Most films about mental illness are, ironically, depressing. I’m a lot of things, but serious is rarely one of them. I think we can all agree that it’s not the easiest time to be alive, and with things getting worse faster than I can lower my standards, I’m very grateful to Channel 4 and Hungry Bear Media for letting me tell my story my way."

Tim Hancock, Commissioning Editor for Channel 4, said: "I am hugely grateful to Joe for allowing us into his life and mind for this powerful, sensitive and at times very funny programme. It’s a unique mix of comedy and brutal authenticity, which all comes together to create a clear portrait of what it is to live with this tough condition."

Hungry Bear's Dan Baldwin added: "Making this documentary with the phenomenally talented Joe Tracini was a huge highlight for us all. It is a tough, heart-wrenching, enlightening, terrifying and brilliantly funny film. In my opinion, it deserves to win everything – hearts, minds and awards."

Transmission details will be confirmed in due course.
