PUZZLING: FIRST LOOK AT NEW CHANNEL 5 QUIZ HOSTED BY LUCY WORSLEY
Channel 5 has commissioned a brand new primetime quiz show dedicated to testing contestants’ problem-solving genius in Puzzling (w/t), a 13 x 60’ series produced by 12 Yard Productions and Wheelhouse.
Broadcaster and historian Lucy Worsley seeks to challenge Britain’s brightest minds as they do battle to be hailed Britain’s ultimate puzzler. At the start of each episode, six super smart strangers are split into two teams of three. The two teams try to accrue the most points through their powers of puzzling deduction.
Every area of our player’s mind will be tested across five puzzling rounds – In Other Words (language), Pressure Points (calculation), Rule Breakers (lateral thinking), Picture This (visual intelligence) and Memory Bank (memory).
Then, in a dramatic plot twist, the winning team turn on each other to be named the ‘Best of the Best’ and earn a place in the series Grand Final where the ultimate puzzler will be crowned.
Lucy Worsley said: I’m delighted to be taking on the role of puzzle-mistress in this brand-new quiz show. I’ve spent most of my career finding answers to historical questions so getting to ask the questions is going to be an exciting new adventure for me, I can’t wait to get puzzling!
Puzzling is coming soon to Channel 5.
