ITV Picks Up Quiz Show “The Exit List”
In a fast turnaround, ITV has picked up the Sony Pictures Television game show The Exit List. The Exit List sees a team of contestants descend into a 24 square grid lined up in a pyramid shape. Each square has cash up to £100,000. To claim it the team must answer a multiple choice question correct. If they are correct they bank the cash and only that correct answer is added to The Exit List. If they are wrong, though, all four answers are added and the path directly in front of them is locked. After they’ve banked all they want to they can end the game and take home their cash, but only if they can remember the list of answers. A team can win up to £200,000. The series will be presented by Matt Allwright. ABC commissioned a pilot for the format.
We discussed the rules from the pitch film a bit ago, and it doesn’t look like it was changed much. That’s a pity because this doesn’t seem nearly as exciting or challenging as it should. It’s a team of two without some hugely urgent time pressure. I don’t think it’s that hard to memorize eight to eleven answers between them and score a pretty nice five figure payday. Even if one person has to give the list, like in the film, with all the time they have and the repetition of seeing the list it doesn’t seem that huge of a challenge. I’m still looking forward to it, though, and we’ll be sure to cover it.
