ROB BECKETT'S SMART TV: SKY CONFIRM FULL SERIES FOLLOWING SUCCESSFUL PILOT
Sky have confirmed that it's commissioned a full series of Rob Beckett's Smart TV, formerly On Demand, following a successful pilot earlier this year.
Comedian Rob Beckett hosts the comedy show, which puts your cultural and television knowledge to the test, alongside regular team captains Josh Widdicombe and Alison Hammond.
Brought to you by Talkback (a Fremantle label), Rob Beckett's Smart TV adopts the same tone as their acclaimed music quiz show Never Mind the Buzzcocks. With dynamic rounds, hilarious anecdotes and incredible trivia, chaos is guaranteed!
Featuring some of the biggest names in TV, the regulars will be joined by actors, comics, presenters and personalities, competing across a series of funny, chaotic, trivia infused rounds to see who knows the most about telly.
Team captain Alison Hammond says: “This will be my first time working with Sky so I’m thrilled to be finally joining the family. We all know that I love a bit of telly – when I’m not actually on it, I’m watching it – so I’m going to apply everything I know and have learned over the years and go for the win. Watch out Josh babs!”
Phil Edgar Jones, Director of Sky Entertainment, commented: “From football, to music, to fresh new formats, it’s another extremely exciting year for comedy entertainment on Sky Max with the nation’s best loved and funniest faces...
"As ever, we’re delighted to continue showcasing the best British talent and providing a platform for innovative and original entertainment shows.”
The series begins recording at Television in early October. For more details and audience tickets, click here.
