PYRAMID: JANE McDONALD HOSTS UK PILOT FOR US GAMESHOW FORMAT
Earlier this week, a pilot for UK version of hit US gameshow format Pyramid was recorded at Dock10 in MediaCity.
Pyramid is a word-association game format which airs in America on ABC and previously on CBS and three teams, each comprising of a celebrity and civilian contestant, compete against each other against the clock to win the grand prize of £60,000.
Each pair takes in turns to describe words to each other, without being able to say the word itself.
Website Bother's Bar reports that the UK non-TX pilot was an hour-long primetime edition hosted by Jane McDonald, with ITV the likely broadcaster. Celebrity guests were reportedly Justin Moorhouse, Marlon Davis, and Jenny Ryan.
More details will be revealed in due course.
