Giles Coren to Host 500 Questions on ITV
 
TV presenter and newspaper columnist, Giles Coren will present brand new ITV quiz show 500 Questions that will air on the channel later this year.
 
Wall To Wall Media (a Warner Bros Television Production UK Ltd Company) is bringing the hit U.S. quiz show 500 Questions over to the UK to air in a primetime slot on ITV.
 
500 Questions is an intense battle of brainpower that will test even the smartest of contestants with a relentless stream of demanding questions.  Intellect, strategy and stamina are all essential in order to win. There’s no help, no hints, no multiple-choice and one very simple rule: never get three wrong in a row.
 
ITV’s Commissioning Editor for Entertainment, Asif Zubairy said "500 Questions is an edge-of-the-seat quiz show and an exciting addition to the ITV entertainment slate".
 
“There was a big buzz around 500 Questions when it aired in the USA and I can’t wait to bring television's toughest quiz to ITV” says Leanne Klein, CEO, Wall to Wall. 
 
“500 Questions is a show that genuinely acknowledges intelligence and tactics. To win you have to be resilient and you have to be smart. It feels exciting and original… and the questions really are tough” says host Giles Coren.
