Channel 4 has commissioned a new gameshow from Victory Television to air in a weekday slot.
Paddy McGuiness will present Benchmark in which contestants are aided by 10 members of the Great British Public (aka ‘Benchmarkers’) in their quest to win thousands of pounds.
“We are completely thrilled that Paddy will be hosting this distinctive new game show which not only has great play along at its heart but revels in being warm and funny and bringing the best out of the contestants.” – Commissioning Editor, Channel 4, Syeda Irtizaali
In the quiz, the ‘Benchmarkers’ must answer a series of tricky numerical general knowledge questions, their answers set the benchmark and all the contestant has to do is decide whether the correct answer is higher or lower.
As well as helping, and hopefully not hindering, the contestant – the ‘Benchmarkers’ are also in their own battle to be top of the leader board to play for cash on the next show.
“Benchmark is an incredibly simple, but hugely entertaining game show that will have you shouting at your TV. Paddy is the perfect match for the show and guarantees wit and humor at its core.” – Head of Entertainment, Victory Television, Stuart Shawcross
