Thames to produce Game of Talents

Thames (part of Fremantle) has been commissioned by ITV to produce brand-new game show, Game of Talents, which will see contestants try to uncover the secret talents of the public for a chance to win a big money prize.

Each episode will see contestants’ team up with a celebrity favourite as the pairs work together to try and figure out the surprising and often bizarre hidden talents of eight mystery performers. So, can they really spot the opera singer from the weightlifter, or the acrobat from the fire eater based solely on their appearance and some intriguing clues along the way? Game of Talents merges the excitement of a talent show with all the fun of a gameshow where viewers can play along at home.

Amelia Brown, Managing Director of Thames, says: “Game of Talents is a winning format and we can’t wait to bring it – along with lots of laughs, surprises and fun – to a UK audience. The show has a unique combination of performances mixed with game play that will entertain families ranging from young and old and everyone in between.”

Katie Rawcliffe, Head of Entertainment Commissioning, ITV adds:  “This programme offers a different and hilarious take on the talent show and we can’t wait to bring it to our viewers in 2021”.

The show will be Executive Produced by Ashley Whitehouse for Thames and was commissioned by ITV’s Head of Entertainment Commissioning, Katie Rawcliffe and Commissioning Editor, Entertainment Kevin O’Brien.

The format, devised by Fremantle with Mediaset España, has proven to be a huge success and is now entering its third season in Spain on Cuatro. The 7 x 60’ episodes will air on ITV in 2021 and the public can get involved in the show, by emailing itvgameshow@thames.tv.
