New ABC quiz for 6pm
Exclusive: Get out your trivia teams for a new ABC show in 2018.
The unnamed show, to be produced by ITV Studios Australia, is set for a 6pm timeslot and surrounds pub trivia.
Tipped to run for an hour each weeknight, TV Tonight understands the show will also break the mould on its hosting role.
Whether that means a female host or not, is unclear, but quiz shows have generally been slow to embrace female hosts…. Julia Zemiro (RocKwiz), Cornelia Frances (The Weakest Link) and Kerri-Anne Kennerley (Greed) amongst the few on Australian TV.
The 6pm slot, currently home to Family Feud on TEN, was also the home of SBS quiz Letters & Numbers and remains an opportunity for the broadcaster which underperforms against news bulletins on Seven & Nine.
ITV Studios has proven successes with The Chase for Seven, while Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation is returning for Nine as first revealed here.
ABC declined to comment.
