Mark Benton is to host a new weekday game show for BBC One.
The Edge will see four contestants stationed at podiums where they will answer questions for the right to roll balls down cash lines. The nearer their ball gets to ‘The Edge’ the more money the players will bank; go over ‘The Edge’ and they could face elimination.
In the final round the remaining high-roller has one target remaining on the runway – ‘The Edge’, which is now worth their entire winnings. The more questions they answer correctly the larger ‘The Edge’ grows.
“I’m thrilled to be hosting The Edge, it’s a battle of brains and balls! What could be more exciting?” – Benton
The concept was devised by Jamie Ingley and Mark Espley with the first series, comprising of 25 forty-five minute editions, to be produced by BBC Entertainment.
