‘A battle of brainpower, communication, teamwork and deception’ in ITV game show

ITV have commissioned brand new eight-part gameshow The Genius Game – the ultimate reality game of intelligence and betrayal.

Katie Rawcliffe, Head of Entertaining Commissioning, ITV:

“This is a battle of brainpower, communication, teamwork and deception which will keep viewers gripped and guessing right until the end. Each game will force them to make crucial alliances and test their thinking and I can’t wait to see how they play it to their advantage to survive.”

In this extreme competition of building alliances, strategic thinking in a battle of wits and manipulation, produced by Remarkable Entertainment (a Banijay UK Company), ten players with their own crucial unique skill will compete against each other in matches that test their strategic thinking and social skills, that will keep viewers guessing right to the end.

Players are chosen based on their intelligence, charisma and social IQ, with the game testing their analytical reasoning, attention to detail, memory and loyalty, as participants must form alliances to survive and decide who they can trust and who to betray in order to be crowned ‘the Genius’ to win a cash prize.

With shocking reveals and epic betrayals, who has what it takes to conspire all the way to the end to become The Genius?

Tamara Gilder, joint MD of Remarkable:

“We have been obsessive about making the UK version of The Genius Game, almost as obsessive as you need to be to win it.  It’s a true passion project of ours, and it’s brilliant to be making it with Katie Rawcliffe and Joe Mace at ITV Entertainment who love it as much as we do. The Genius Game is the best gameshow you’ve never seen.”
