BBC Shelves “Secret Fortune”; Orders “Break the Safe”
While one BBC lottery game show appears to be going away, another one will be taking its place. BBC One has announced that they plan on shaking up its lottery game show lineup. The network will be resting the Wild Rover-produced Secret Fortunes. While they have no immediate plans for a new series they are not ruling out its potential return. This past series averaged in the area of four million viewers.
In its place is the new quiz and intuition show Break the Safe. Each show sees contestants trying to win £100,000 as they stop a 40 minute clock within a predetermined limit. The host will be Secret Fortune host Nick Knowles. The series is produced by Thames Scotland and executive produced by Suzie Lamb and Sarah Woolley. Eight 40 minute episodes have been ordered.
