Baywatch creator David Hasselhoff will star in his own six-part semi-improvised comedy series, Hoff the Record, on UK TV channel Dave.

The documentary-style show will follow the Hoff as he moves to the UK to get his personal life and career back on track after a series of setbacks.

“When I made Baywatch, I dreamed of one day having my own show on a channel named after me,” jokes the 61-year-old.

“They did name the channel after me, right…?”

According to UKTV, Hoff the Record will blur the lines between real life and improvisational comedy and will be filmed in the UK and overseas, with an ensemble cast of new and established comedy talent.

Hoff the Record will screen on Dave in 2015.
