101 Ways To Leave A Gameshow

BBC One has commissioned a new show called 101 Ways To Leave A Gameshow, which will air on Saturday evenings and will be hosted by hunk/irritant Steve Jones.

Each week 8 contestants will put their general knowledge to the test, hoping to make it through a series of rounds, in a bid to win the £10,000 prize.

However, contestants will leave the show via a variety of brain-puzzling methods… think cannons, rockets, catapults and bungees, freezing water, glutinous mud, dread and humiliation.

During each round the contestants face a single multiple choice question where all the answers… except one… are correct.

That’s the answer they are all trying to avoid; the problem is, it’s not until they are moments away from a horrendous way of exiting the show, that one of the contestants discovers they have made the wrong choice.

All the action takes place on the monolithic “tower”, a purpose-built venue rising 100 feet in to the sky. The quiz part of the show happens in a high-tech studio, which can move up and down inside the tower.

But with one side of the studio constantly exposed to the elements, the contestants are only ever a few feet away from being flung from the tower by some strange device.

One moment they’re in the relative calm of a sophisticated quiz show set; the next they’re hanging upside down on a zipline in a high wind about to be fired off the tower and off the show for good.
