Alan Carr to reboot Play Your Cards Right and Bullseye for ITV
James R | On 24, Jun 2019
Alan Carr will bring back Play Your Cards Right, Bullseye and other classic gameshows for a new series on ITV.
Alan Carr’s Epic Gameshow will see five of the country’s all-time favourite game shows supersized and reinvigorated for 2019. The other formats getting the reboot treatment are Take Your Pick, Strike It Lucky and The Price is Right.
The seven-part series will see contestants playing to win either big-cash rewards or top-of-the-range prizes. Every format will climax with an all-new endgame, bringing the shows “bang up to date”.
Carr says: “It is such a privilege for me to be involved in these truly iconic shows that have brought so much joy to my childhood. A little bit of nostalgia but a whole load of fun. Big shoes to fill I know, but these shows should be back on telly for a whole new generation to sit down and enjoy with their family just like I did all those years ago!”
The series will also feature a Christmas edition of The Price Is Right, and a Play Your Cards Right Celebrity Special.
Epic Gameshow was ordered for ITV by Siobhan Greene, Head of Entertainment Commissioning, ITV, and Joe Mace, Commissioning Editor for Entertainment, ITV. Made for ITV by Talkback (part of Fremantle), and Executive Produced by Jonno Richards and Leon Wilson. The Series Producer is Toby Brack.
Mace says: “We are really excited to bring these brilliant shows back to prime time with Alan Carr, they are the perfect match and we can’t wait for the audiences to fall in love with both.”
