ITV studios is reportedly developing a new daytime quiz show pilot and if successful the show could launch on ITV1.
In The Chase, members of the public will team up to compete for a cash prize of up to 100k. The team must answer a series of general knowledge questions in order to win the cash, but standing in their way is a quiz genius, the chaser.
Auditions for contestants will take place next month before the pilot is filmed in June at ITV’s studios in either Manchester or London. The pilot was ordered by ITV factual and daytime director Alison Sharman.
ITV have launched several new game shows recently some more successful than others including Spin Star, Divided and Saturday night flop Colour Of Money hosted by Chris Tarrant.
Whether this one will be successful remains to be seen – after all from the sounds of it the audience for this kind of show is already catered for by BBC2’s Eggheads.
