Get ready for the next chapter in the story of The Hoff!
This excruciatingly funny, semi-improvised comedy sees actor David Hasselhoff play a fictionalised version of himself – complete with previously unknown German son and an oddball entourage – as he arrives in the UK to try and reignite his career.
Shot in documentary style and made by the award-winning team behind An Idiot Abroad and The Moaning of Life, this hilarious series follows a fictionalised version of Hasselhoff, 30 years after he rose to fame with global hits Knight Rider and Baywatch.
After five divorces and some misguided professional decisions, The Hoff is in the UK ready to star in a new independent film that could reboot his career. But alarm bells start to ring when he gets the low budget treatment on arrival from the US.
After a series of on-set clashes, it’s soon clear that the director has a very different vision for the project, and The Hoff tasks his UK manager with finding him something more worthy of his talents. As his attempts at everything from fronting a charity to becoming a global peacemaker fall into disarray, can The Hoff get his career back on track and make sense of his increasingly surreal life?
