Series will combine reality with scripted comedy and features The Daily Show veteran as a Us correspondent
Us comedian and actor Rob Riggle will star in a new BBC3 comedy that turns dating into a Us-style TV sports show.
World Series of Dating will combine reality with scripted comedy as a series of male contestants attempt to impress a panel of women in "the date zone".
The show will feature a Us-style sports referee, played by newcomer Bentley Kalu, and Riggle as American correspondent Doyle MacManus.
Contestants are members of the public on first dates, but the setup is anything but real, with Torchwood star Tom Price playing the role of UK correspondent James Chetwynd-Talbot and Thaila Zucchi (Star Stories, Balls of Steel) as a touchline reporter.
