BBC Studioworks is providing full studio and technical services to Channel 5’s new gameshow, Celebrity Game Night.

The production sees Liza Tarbuck take on hosting duties in front of a live audience for indie Monkey’s take on the Emmy-winning American show, Hollywood Game Night.

Tarbuck will be joined by two teams of celebrity guests, led by captains Danny Baker and Susan Calman. The teams will go head-to head in a series of parlour games that test their pop culture knowledge, acting skills, and nerves.

The 6x60-min episodes is filming in BBC Studioworks’ 11,800 sq. ft. Studio D at BBC Elstree Centre, with two episodes recording back-to-back today, Monday 29 and Tuesday 30 October.

The production will be supported by Studio D’s production galleries, EVS tapeless recording facilities and will also draw upon BBC Studioworks’ audio, electrical, engineering and scenic teams.

“Hollywood Game Night has now run in the US for a number of series and has been a massive hit, so we’re very excited to be working with Monkey on the UK’s version of this popular format,” said BBC Studioworks commercial manager Meryl McLaren.

Celebrity Game Night will air on Channel 5 in 2019.
