Posessed, meanwhile, is run by Glenn Hugill who counts the UK versions of The Mole, Beauty and the Geek and Cash Cab among his credits. He is also well-known for creating and playing ‘the banker’ on Deal or No Deal.
In the new show, which is expected to have a late afternoon slot on ITV this summer, six contestants compete over several general knowledge quiz rounds for a ‘life changing’ cash prize, with no participant leaving until a winner is crowned.
ITV has already piloted the show and has now taken it to series, ordering a 10-episode run. ITV’s distribution division will launch the format internationally.
