PREVIEW: Late Night Mash, Dave
Following its cancellation on BBC Two, The Mash Report has found a new home on UKTV's Dave channel.
Each week, Late Night Mash will tap into the latest that the zeitgeist has to offer, with up-to-the-minute topical insights and fake news reports. Late Night Mash will comprise eight brand new episodes and a ninth episode compiling the best moments from the series.
Late Night Mash is a continuation of the successful show The Mash Report, which aired on BBC2 for four series, and will feature Kumar and a team of comics, including the returning Rachel Parris, Ellie Taylor, Geoff Norcott__ and Steve N. Allen. Late Night Mash is produced by Zeppotron and made with The Daily Mash website.
Nish Kumar said "Mash is rising from the dead. I'm not saying I'm Jesus, I just look more like him than most images would have you believe."
UKTV's Mark Iddon said: "Mash Lives! We couldn't be happier to be working with Nish and the rest of the team over at Zeppotron. Mash has always been a show that has taken risks and brought top comedy talent to our screens. It's relevant, reactive and we can't think of a better new home for the show than Dave."
Late Night Mash begins Thursday 2nd September at 10pm on Dave.
