Unspun with Matt Forde is back on Dave this March to take an irreverent look at politics and politicians in 2017. Matt will dismantle the hyperbole and try to work out what an earth is going on, how did it all happen and what's going to happen next.
Produced by Avalon Television, and recorded the day before transmission, series two will feature up-to-the minute analysis of the news agenda, special reports from guest comedians including Andy Zaltzman and Phil Wang and music from Matt's house band MP4, the world's only parliamentary rock group whose members are all serving, or former politicians.
At the heart of each Unspun With Matt Forde will be an in-depth discussion with one of Britain's leading political figures. Fresh from the news of Brexit, series one saw Matt grill some of the UK's most talked about politicians including Chuka Umunna, Ruth Davidson, Nick Clegg and Anna Soubry.
Richard Watsham, director of commissioning, said, "At a time of increasing political uncertainty, Matt Forde's brilliant brand of political comedy is more important than ever. There's not enough satire around right now so I'm delighted to be continuing to stretch Dave's output with a second series of Unspun."
Steve North, general manager for Dave, said, "We are very proud of the series and the brilliant way it's helped Dave build its reputation for contemporary and topical commissioning. Matt gives the channel a platform to be current and unique, and with such a rich mix of political faux pas it's only right Matt has a chance to do what he does best and call those responsible out."
The series will air on Dave from Wednesday 1st March.
