More details on the Welsh Gogglebox spin-off have been revealed ahead of the show's premiere this autumn.

Gogglebocs Cymru, which will be broadcast on Welsh TV channel S4C, will feature families discussing local programming and international programming.

Producers are currently looking to cast "fluent and not so fluent" Welsh speakers for the show, which will air in the first week of November, in conjunction with S4C's 40th anniversary celebrations.

The reality television program will be co-produced by two companies based in North Wales, Chwarel and Cwmni Da, for the first time by Studio Lambert and Channel 4. The broadcast rights are being granted to another UK broadcaster.

"It's going to be absolutely amazing," Sioned Wyn, the managing director of Chwarel, said in a statement.

"We've been waiting for a long time for something like this." The goal is to make it not only the top-rated show on S4C, but throughout Wales and beyond.

"It's been a while since we've talked about collaborating, and when the franchise for the most popular TV format in the United Kingdom came up, it was a dream come true," said Wyn. Llion Iwan, Cwmni Da's managing director, echos Wyn's sentiments.

As casting for S4C's chief content officer, Llinos Griffin-Williams, is still underway, not much is known about the families and friends viewers will get to see during their evenings. "We're looking for a cast of exciting characters that truly represent a diverse modern Wales."

"Gogglebocs Cymru is poised to be a gamechanger for S4C," Griffin-Williams said.

"Gogglebox is a stunning television format that captures the hearts and minds of a country. We want S4C to be a welcoming, interactive home for the very best of world class content that belongs to the whole country."

In November, Gogglebocs Cymru will be available on S4C. Gogglebox airs on Friday nights at 9pm on Channel 4.
