Sky1 HD has announced a new entertainment series, King Of The Nerds, to be presented by Konnie Huq.
Based on the US format of the same name, King Of The Nerds will bring together eleven of Britain’s sharpest young brains, who will face a series of challenges that test their intellect, ingenuity and pop culture prowess.
The contestants will reside together in ‘Nerdvana’ competing first as teams before taking on individual challenges. Each week one will be eliminated from the competition until there is one winner who will sit on the ‘Throne Of Games’ and become King Of The Nerds.
“Totally excited about King Of The Nerds, such a great concept. Me and my hubby got really addicted to seasons 1 and 2 of the US show, great challenges and fab characters. Can’t wait to start filming the UK version.” – Konnie Huq
The eight-part series from Objective Productions, 5×5 and Electus will air on Sky 1 HD later this year.
