ITV commissions epic reboot of five of the nation’s favourite gameshows, hosted by Alan Carr
ITV has commissioned Alan Carr’s Epic Gameshow, a 7×60’ series, which will see five of the country’s all-time favourite game shows supersized and reinvigorated for 2019. Presented by the brilliant Alan Carr, the five legendary formats getting the big scale treatment are: Play Your Cards Right, Take Your Pick, Strike It Lucky, Bullseye and The Price is Right.
The series will see contestants hoping to win either big-cash rewards or top-of-the-range prizes. Alongside the entertaining, hilarious and nail-biting contests that viewers know and love, every format will climax with an all-new epic endgame, bringing these iconic shows bang up to date.
Host Alan Carr said:
“It is such a privilege for me to be involved in these truly iconic shows that have brought so much joy to my childhood. A little bit of nostalgia but a whole load of fun. Big shoes to fill I know, but these shows should be back on telly for a whole new generation to sit down and enjoy with their family just like I did all those years ago!”
Also featuring a Christmas edition of The Price Is Right, and a Play Your Cards Right Celebrity Special, Alan Carr’s Epic Gameshow promises excitement, drama, scale and big family laughs.
