Comedy Central UK today announced that it has greenlit three new shows, including quiz format Fact Off (w/t).
Monkey will produce comedy quiz show Fact Off (w/t) (6 x 60’), in which four comedians, armed with the most impressive facts and fascinating trivia they know, try to outsmart one another throughout a variety of rounds in a bid to get their knowledge onto the show’s prestigious ‘Wall of Facts’.
Sebastian Cardwell, Deputy Director of Programmes at ViacomCBS Networks UK, said: “It’s exciting to be further establishing Comedy Central UK as the go-to destination for brilliant British comedy, with new commissions that will fit perfectly within our expanding slate of originals. These three new rich and varied formats with top-tier comedic talent at the heart are guaranteed to keep our audiences laughing.”
Will Macdonald, Monkey’s Creative Director and Executive Producer added: “There’s nothing the people of this nation love more than being righteously indignant, apart from perhaps claiming an amazing fact they’ve heard on the bus as their own. So, we’re excited to have created two shows looking at the funny side of the very British art forms of quality complaining and showing off knowledge which may or may not be true.”
