“We’re chuffed to be welcoming both Kate and Jason to the channel to anchor the utterly bonkers and hilarious Wild Things. The show is like nothing we’ve seen before – with a blend of giant woodland creatures, bickering couples and pots of gold; it’s a big daft slice of genius.” – Adam MacDonald, Sky 1 Channel Director
Wild Things is a new family entertainment show, which features teams – pairs of relations or couples – undertaking a range of challenges on a gigantic woodland obstacle course in order to get the chance to walk away with a fortune in gold coins buried deep within the Wild Wood.
To begin one member of each team is nominated as the Wild Thing, which means they must wear a woodland protection suit designed to look like a cute woodland animal; be it an owl, a stag, a duck or even a mole. Unfortunately this means that not only do they look ridiculous but also that they cannot see a thing, so they will need their partner to guide them to safety and victory.
“I’m really proud to be a part of Wild Things, one of the funniest and ‘funnest’ shows I’ve ever worked on. It’s not often I cry laughing at a badger bashing a duck while an owl bowls them over to the ground. But then again, who wouldn’t find that funny? That’s the magic of Wild Things; even the hardest heart will laugh loudly at this show.” – Jason Byrne
