IAN WRIGHT'S MONEYBALL AXED BY ITV AFTER TWO SERIES
Moneyball, the ITV gameshow hosted by Ian Wright, will not be returning for a third series any time soon.
TV Zone understands that ITV have no plans for a third series, though do not rule out returning to the format in the future. TV Zone also reports that ITV have made the same decision about Sitting On A Fortune, hosted by Gary Lineker. More details here.
The format sees contestants navigating their way through a series of questions, each correct answer earns hopeful players a ball which they roll onto ‘The Launcher’ - the machine at the helm of this brand-new high octane show.
In this game of skill, contestants must press a button to ‘Lock The Launcher’ - setting the height in which the ball will be dropped from. The higher the ball drops from the longer it will keep rolling. Tensions run high as the ball rolls back and forth until it comes to rest on an amount of cash or a dreaded ‘Danger’ sign.
The cash up for grabs continues to climb but so does the pressure, leaving both players and viewers in suspense. Before contestants can think about spending their winnings, they need to play one final ball - a Moneyball, which could see them leaving with their hard-earned cash or going home with nothing.
Moneyball is available now on ITVX.
