Monkey brings award-winning American gameshow format to Elstree.
BBC Studioworks will be providing full studio and technical services to Channel 5’s brand new gameshow, Celebrity Game Night.
Celebrity Game Night sees actor and radio personality, Liza Tarbuck, take on hosting duties in front of a live audience for production company Monkey’s take on the triple-Emmy-winning American show, Hollywood Game Night.
Liza will be joined by two teams of celebrity guests, led by captains Danny Baker and Susan Calman. The teams will go head-to head in a series of entertaining parlour games that test their pop culture knowledge, acting skills, and nerves of steel.
The six sixty-minute episodes will be facilitated in BBC Studioworks 11,800 sq. ft. Studio D at BBC Elstree Centre, with two episodes recording back-to-back on Thursday 25, Monday 29 and Tuesday 30 October.
The production will be supported by Studio D’s production galleries, EVS tapeless recording facilities and will also draw upon BBC Studioworks’ audio, electrical, engineering and scenic teams.
“Hollywood Game Night has now run in the US for a number of series and has been a massive hit, so we’re very excited to be working with Monkey on the UK’s version of this popular format,” said Meryl McLaren, Commercial Manager, BBC Studioworks.
Celebrity Game Night will air on Channel 5 in 2019.
