Roman Kemp and Vick Hope will host a new afternoon show called 2Awesome on ITV2
ITV2 today announced that the pair would front a brand new two-hour Sunday afternoon show from 1pm to 3pm starting on the 8th January, which will feature exclusive UK premieres of some of AwesomenessTV’s most popular US programmes.
ITV and AwesomenessTV announced a partnership earlier this year, which sees ITV2 acquiring exclusive UK premiere rights to the global youth-brand’s premium series, a mix of drama, reality, comedy and thriller which will air in this new two-hour show.
Roman says, “I can't wait to start 2Awesome, it's great to have this type of show back on TV. Working with ITV is something that I am really enjoying, so being asked to co-host a great show like this, was an easy decision to make.”
Vick says, “I'm so excited to be presenting 2Awesome! I love that ITV2 are passionate about bringing a show like this to its audience. The 2Awesome vibe feels a lot like the weekend shows I watched growing up, so I'm really honoured to be a part of this. Working with such brilliant team, I know this is going to be a lot of fun... What a great start to 2017!”
2Awesome will launch on 8 January at 1pm and the two-hour show, made by ITV Studios, will launch with AwesomenessTV content including Guidance, Side Effects, Third Wheel and LA Story.
Executive Producer Debbie David said, “2Awesome will be a brand new destination, bridging the gap between YouTube and TV. As well as celebrity interviews with a twist, we will also be taking some of the biggest social trends and challenges and recreating them with guests.”
Adding, “The TV show will integrate and embrace its very own Instagram and Snapchat (@weare2awesome) which will offer unseen exclusives and behind the scenes as well as encouraging our audience to get involved.”
