John Robins’ Format The Island has been commissioned for an 8 part series for UKTV

UKTV today announces a new format for Dave: The Island (8×60’).  The Island will see four comics play God across the entire series as they each conceive their dream island nation to rule over.  John Robins will write and executive produce the show, alongside James Acaster, Ed Gamble and Lloyd Langford, and it will be hosted by Tom Allen.

Iain Coyle, UKTV’s  head of comedy entertainment said, “It’s a unique concept, driven by some of the sharpest comedic minds in the country. I’m absolutely delighted that we’ve managed to secure this show for Dave.”

The Island will air later this year on Dave.
