Airing in 2022 on Channel 4, Taskmaster stars the show's creator Little Alex Horne scuttling behind the deafening footsteps of demanding overlord and the Taskmaster himself, Greg Davies.
Hoping to win valuable points, eternal glory, and favourable treatment from the Taskmaster are: stand-up, actor, and author Ardal O’Hanlon, award winning comedian Bridget Christie, stand-up comedian and TV host Chris Ramsey, comedian and presenter Judi Love, and comedian, actress, and podcaster Sophie Duker.
Having voluntarily signed up for the inevitable metaphorical slaughter at the hands of the tyrannical Taskmaster, each contestant will be put through their paces in a brand new set of tasks designed to test their daring, dexterity and dignity under extreme pressure.
Executive Producers for the series are Alex Horne, Richard Allen-Turner, Rob Aslett, James Taylor, Jon Thoday and Andy Devonshire (The Apprentice and The Great British Bake Off), who also acts as Series Director, while Andy Cartwright is Series Producer. Commissioned for Channel 4 by Head of Entertainment, Phil Harris and Head of Live Events, Tom Beck.
