A new dialect variety show is also in the works and will be shown on Channel 8 on Fridays from noon to 12.30pm.

The 10-episode series, called Happy Can Already!, will debut on Dec 2 and will be directed by Jack Neo. Each episode will see topics such as healthcare, retirement adequacy, SkillsFuture and SGSecure told through songs and skits.
