Will Mellor and Ralf Little are teaming up for a new entertainment show, Will & Ralf Should Know Better, for U and U&Dave.

The 4 x 60’ series follows the two forty-somethings, who have been friends for 20 years, as they embark on a series of encounters and challenges that will test their attitudes on everything from embracing their ‘spiritual’ side, facing their fear of aging and discovering the perils of living off grid.

Will and Ralf Should Know Better is produced by Afro-Mic Productions and supported by Northern Ireland Screen. The executive producers are Alison Foster and Emma-Rosa Dias.

The series has been commissioned for UKTV by Jason Dawson, commissioning executive. The series is ordered by Cherie Hall, Dave channel director, and Hilary Rosen, director of commissioning.

Dawson said: “I think we all get to a point in life where the world feels like it’s moving too fast, so making a show that mischievously explores this through the lens of a friendship that’s evolved (or not as the case may be) over twenty years feels incredibly timely and relevant to our audience. We’re hugely excited to be working with Will Mellor, Ralf Little and Afro-Mic to bring this to screens later this year.”

Dias added: “We are very excited to be producing this new series for U&Dave. We can’t wait to get on the road with Will and Ralf, two of Britain’s best loved and funniest friends, as they challenge themselves and each other on a journey around the UK to get to grips with the modern world.”

Next week sees the launch of new masterbrand U, that ties together UKTV’s free-to-air channels – becoming U&Dave, U&DRAMA, U&YESTERDAY and U&W – and its free steaming service which transitions from UKTV Play to U.
