The show will be hosted by Buzzfeed’s TV editor Scott Bryan (@scottygb) and social media editor Dionne Grant (@DionneGrant), and broadcast from Buzzfeed’s London HQ.
It will begin this autumn on a date yet to be confirmed. The show will feature reviews, recaps, games, guest presenters and celebrity interviews. Twitter said that a sponsor for the show would be announced in due course.
Buzzfeed launched AM to DM, another live Twitter show based in the US, last August – but #What2Watch is the first from Buzzfeed UK.
Janine Gibson, editor-in-chief of BuzzFeed UK, said, “Our longstanding track record of talking about television on Twitter speaks for itself, so we’re thrilled to translate this expertise into a studio show. Scott and Dionne will be perfect at bringing these conversations to life, be it gossip, memes, fury or, most crucially, what to actually watch.”
