The multi-talented and award-winning Javone Prince has landed on BBC Two with a brand-new sketch series. The Javone Prince Show looks at all facets of contemporary multicultural Britain; it questions who we are, what our attitudes are and why we have them. Each week, self-professed original loverman, Javone (PhoneShop, Horrible Histories) and friends will dissect 21st century Britain with a series of comedic takes on everyday life.
The Javone Prince Show (4×30') is the first production for Phil Bowker (PhoneShop, Pulling, 15 Storeys High) and Lee Tucker's (Silver River, Avalon) indie 'Lovely Electricity' and will be made jointly with BBC In-house Comedy Production. Myfanwy Moore (Little Britain) will be the executive producer.

Dane is 29, ambitious, frustrated and very funny. He (still) lives with his parents, in a crammed box room which he shares with his Mum's cleaning equipment. He's a twin, which guarantees that any affection,support and enjoyment in his homelife has always been split in half. Alongside Kadean, his twin sister, Dane's nemesis is his boss, Steve, who represents everything that Dane is determined to escape from.
Dane needs his salary if he's ever going to break away from his privacy-free homelife, but he's desperate to follow his dream. Driven on by personal ambition, the support of his girlfriend, Nicola and best friend Sam, today could finally be the day when everything's about to change…
Feeling a little suffocated, Sean encourages Jamie to go on a few more dates…but his plan backfires.
Wedding Dates is written and created by Daniel Rusteau – to catch up on the rest of the series, click here.
