British public broadcaster the BBC has acquired quiz show format The Rich List from producer and distributor 12 Yard Productions. The show has been renamed Who Dares Wins for the BBC, which will air it on Saturday evening.
The premise of the show is simple: contestants win prizes by completing lists. A team of total strangers must outwit their opponents by filling in missing answers on a particular list that could include topics as far-ranging as movies directed by Steven Spielberg, hit singles by Abba or countries beginning with a certain letter.
12 Yard Productions has already sold the gameshow to US network Fox, Australia’s Seven Network, Sat1 in Germany and New Zealand broadcaster TVNZ.
