STV Productions, in association with LTV, have been commissioned to make another 40 episodes of the innovative quiz show The Link for BBC One daytime.
The Link, presented by actor Mark Williams, saw its first series air earlier this year and became the number one programme in its daytime time slot. Over the course of 45 minutes, the quiz sees three teams race against time to find the link between questions. It’s a game that rewards daring, strategy and teamwork – make the connections, break the links, win money – it’s simple.
“We’re thrilled that the addictive gameplay of The Link, combined with Mark’s fantastic stewardship, proved such a hit with the daytime audience, and are thrilled to be making another series for BBC One.” – Gary Chippington, head of entertainment for STV Productions
The first run aired from May 2014, the air date for the second series has yet to be announced by the BBC. STV is the ITV Scotland broadcaster for two regions covering North and Central Scotland. STV has held the ITV production and broadcast licence for Scottish viewers since 1957.
