ITV promo

TV presenter and newspaper columnist, Giles Coren will present brand new ITV quiz show 500 Questions that will air on the channel later this year.

“500 Questions is an edge-of-the-seat quiz show and an exciting addition to the ITV entertainment slate” – ITV’s Commissioning Editor for Entertainment, Asif Zubairy

Wall To Wall Media is bringing the popular stateside quiz show 500 over to the UK to air in a primetime slot on ITV.

500 Questions is an intense battle of brainpower that will test even the smartest of contestants with a relentless stream of demanding questions. Intellect, strategy and stamina are all essential in order to win. There’s no help, no hints, no multiple-choice and one very simple rule: never get three wrong in a row.

“There was a big buzz around 500 Questions when it aired in the USA and I can’t wait to bring television’s toughest quiz to ITV” says Leanne Klein, CEO, Wall to Wall. 500 Questions is a show that genuinely acknowledges intelligence and tactics. To win you have to be resilient and you have to be smart. It feels exciting and original… and the questions really are tough” – Giles Coren

It sounds lovely, but you know some of us still wouldn’t mind a nice traditional easygoing game show on say Sunday early evenings, Bullseye for example…
