ITV men's channel unveils line-up
David Letterman
David Letterman's Late Show will be screened every weeknight
ITV4, ITV's new digital channel for men, has unveiled its programme line-up ahead of its launch on 1 November.

Targeting "a discerning male audience" aged 22 to 45, the channel will broadcast a mix of imported US TV dramas, films, comedy and sport.

Its programmes include the new series of Kojak starring Pulp Fiction's Ving Rhames, crime drama Wanted and David Letterman's nightly talk show.

The channel will also screen Champions League football from next year.

Comedy offerings include The Assistant - a spoof reality show based on The Apprentice - and Invasion Iowa starring Star Trek's William Shatner.

'New dimension'

Alongside such mainstream Hollywood movies as Magnum Force and The Fast and the Furious, ITV4 will also screen feature-length documentaries such as Outfoxed and The Hunting of the President.

Programmes will start broadcasting at 1800 daily.

Channel editor Stephen Arnell said ITV4 would bring "a whole new dimension to the ITV family of channels".

The service is intended to complement the female demographic of ITV2 and the older audience of ITV3.

The channel was announced in June after ITV won an auction for a spare slot on the digital television platform Freeview.
