IN WITH A SHOUT: JOEL DOMMETT GAMESHOW CONFIRMED FOR SECOND SERIES ON ITV
As exclusively revealed by TV Zone in July, Expectation has been commissioned by ITV1 to produce a second series with an extended run of the dynamic game show, In With A Shout.
The 7 x 60 series, which challenges contestants to shout at the TV to win a fortune, will see comedian Joel Dommett return as host and will begin filming later this year. There will also be a one-off Celebrity Soccer Aid special episode.
In With A Shout, which will transmit on ITV1 and ITVX, sees two families battle against each other in a thrilling game with a challenging twist. With a mega prize of £20,000, the contestants have to answer questions hidden within a montage of moving images, with the winning family battling it out with just 60 seconds to successfully answer the questions - or walk away with nothing.
Across the six weeks series one aired, ITV1’s Saturday 7pm slot was up +20% year-on-year for volume and the series reached 3.5m viewers every week.
Host Joel Dommett said: “Get ready to shout at the TV again because we’re coming back for series TWO! I had a blast hosting In With A Shout earlier this year and I really can’t wait to get back to it!””
Ben Wicks, Creative Director, Entertainment at Expectation added: “It’s great that ITV are backing the show and thanks to Joel Dommett for his superb martialling of the format throughout a stellar series one, making it the highest rated new game show of the year...
"News of its return is superb - not least because we’ll get another bumper crop of hilarious answers, like when a clip of a kazoo was identified as a “submarine”, a warthog as “Hogwarts”, and Daniel Craig as “Craig David”.
In With A Shout is an Expectation production for ITV1.
