London, 19th March – A brand spanking new and original web culture quiz show is coming to Together, hosted by YouTube Creator for Change Humza Arshad and his squad of comedians and Insta-stars.
In a journey through the good bad, ugly and downright weird of the internet, the 80-million views Youtuber Humza will be accompanied by Omar Mohidin, Sanj Surati, Rio Fredrika, Archie Manners, Hakkan Hassan, Holly Brockwell, Melanie Gayle, Klayze Smith, Nicola Hume and Nicola Kill.
Think A League of Their Own meets 8 out of 10 Cats meets Would I Lie To You, each week, the two teams play rounds involving skills, mimicry and play head-to-head in the final. Each show wraps up with Humza’s Heroes, looking at the great causes viewers can support online.
Together, the TV channel launched in January, will be airing the 10-episodes show starting Friday the 23rd March, with new episodes weekly on Fridays at 10pm.
Dhanny Joshi, Managing Director at Big Deal Films, said: “Working with Youtubers, bloggers, comedians to produce this TV show has been amazing. We wanted to give voice to talents representing diversity and ready to break into TV. We are grateful to Together for giving us this stage, it is thanks to platforms like Together that make us bigger for the future.”
Alexander Kann, Chief Executive of Together said: “We have commissioned this series as we want to celebrate the best of the web and create a platform to nurture new talent, both on-screen and off. It shows viewers how the web can offer opportunities to do good, for themselves and for others, from the creative tools we now have in our pockets, to amazing causes viewers can get involved with..”
Along with the show, Together wants its viewers to get involved in their communities. Project Dirt is the network that, partnering with the TV channel, uses the internet to bring together over 3,500 local community projects across the UK, connecting grassroots groups with local people, organisations and businesses who are making their community a better place to live.
