The revived Channel 4 quiz show Fifteen to One is to remain on the network in its daytime slot for at least a further two series totaling 100 new episodes.
“We’re delighted that Channel 4 have recommissioned Fifteen to One for a seventh and eighth series. Fifteen to One is one of the UK’s most-loved quiz shows so we’re delighted to be bringing another 100 episodes to audiences across the country alongside the brilliant Sandi Toksvig.” – Remedy Productions’ Chief Creative Officer, Tom Blakeso
Hosted by comedian Sandi Toksvig, the production will return for its seventh and eighth series – with fifty hour long episodes comprising each run. Fifteen To One is a battle of supreme knowledge with the fifteen highest scoring winners returning for the series final, where they’ll compete for the title of Grand Champion and a massive £40,000. The relentless, fast-paced game show is commonly known as TV’s toughest general knowledge quiz.
Series seven and eight will be produced from Remedy Productions’ Glasgow offices by Executive Producer Jim Regan and Series Producer Stuart Harrison and filmed at BBC Pacific Quay Studios.
The show originally screened on Channel 4 from 1988 to 2003 with William G Stewart as host. These classic episodes can currently be seen repeating on game show dedicated broadcaster Challenge TV.
The quiz returned as a one-off celebrity special in 2013 as part of a Channel 4 1980s themed night. However proving a ratings success the quiz show was commissioned for both prime time celebrity contestant and daytime civilian participant productions. The celebrity editions are hosted by comedian Adam Hills.
