UKTV has commissioned a new cooking series hosted by London based grime artist and DJ Big Zuu which will air early 2020 on Dave.
Each episode of Big Zuu’s Big Eats will see Zuu prepare mouth-watering, made-to-order dishes for a famous comedian on tour in the UK.
Big Zuu said: “Having my own TV series has been a dream come true. I’ve grown up obsessed with watching cooking programmes and making homemade food, so to now be able to do that on TV is a surreal feeling. I’m a massive fan of the channel Dave and I can’t wait to start filming!”
UKTV’s Natalie Rose said: “Big Zuu is just the kind of extraordinary raw talent we’ve been looking for. Bags of charisma, effortless charm, infectious humour and true authenticity.
“As a touring artist, he acutely understands life on the road, and the instant gratification delicious food brings. All of which make his partnership with some of the UK’s finest comics that more exciting”
Sam Grace, Director of Programmes at series producers Boomerang, said: “Zuu is naturally funny and spontaneous and we know his favourite comedians will love him as much as we do!
“His cooking style and relaxed trademark narration will be perfect for Dave viewers – who might just pick up a few cooking tips too.”
