Each show sees two contestants compete for a prize which has been specially selected for them. Helping the contestants find the answers are five famous faces from the worlds of sport, music, TV or film. And along the way, Rob ensures that those famous faces take on one or two unexpected questions of their own.
The series is 6×40-mins and was commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Controller, BBC One; Mark Linsey, Controller, Entertainment Commissioning, and Alan Tyler Executive Editor, Entertainment Commissioning. The show will be produced by ITV Studios owned indie, 12 Yard Productions.
Rob Brydon says: “I loved making the pilot for The Guess List and can’t wait to get started on the first series.”
Charlotte Moore, Controller, BBC One, says: “More Rob on BBC One can only be a good thing. It’s a really funny show and an exciting addition to Saturday nights.”
Andy Culpin, Managing Director of 12 Yard, says: “We are so excited to be working with a talent as big as Rob Brydon on this new Saturday night series. His hilarious interaction with the famous faces and members of the public takes the show to another level.”
