Network Ten in Australia has commissioned the family entertainment show Game of Games.
Game of Games will premiere on Network Ten and WIN Network later this year. The host will be announced soon. The Australian version will be based on the U.S. show, which is hosted and executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres.
The U.S. version is produced by Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television in association with Telepictures and DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production. The Network Ten edition is being produced by Warner Bros. International TV Production Australia.
DeGeneres said, “I’m thrilled that Game of Games is making its way to Australia on Ten. And I’m already thinking of ways to make it better. For instance, in the U.S. we drop contestants into vats of mashed potatoes, but in Australia, it’s gonna be 100 percent Vegemite.”
Network Ten’s chief content officer, Beverley McGarvey, added, “Game of Games is a big new show that is light, fun and engaging. It’s a blast of great family entertainment that is perfect for the back half of the year. Game of Games is unique. It’s packed full of big fun, big physical entertainment, big laughs and big cash prizes.”
Warner Bros. International TV Production’s managing director, Michael Brooks, commented, “Game of Games is the biggest physical game show ever filmed inside a studio. It’s laugh-out-loud fun and madness from start to finish and we believe Australian audiences are going to love it.”
