Liam Keelan, Controller, BBC Daytime, and Jo Street, Commissioning Executive, have commissioned a new entertainment show from BBC Entertainment for BBC Two.

Knowitalls, is the brand new quiz show – without questions – where the players’ breadth of knowledge is tested to the limit as teams battle it out to impress real experts on their specialist subjects.

Liam said: “I’m delighted to commission Knowitalls, a fresh and exciting new addition to BBC Daytime entertainment.”

Author, actor and presenter Gyles Brandreth hosts this fast-paced entertainment show, where each team presents everthing they know on a given subject to the experts in the hope that their knowledge will earn them points.

In the first round the two teams are each given three subjects, and using their knowledge alone they have to pull together all the information they can think of for each one. There are three Knowitalls experts per show with different areas of specialisation and the teams must then decide who in the group will present to which expert.

The second round sees one player from each of the teams going head to head as they try to impress the experts and earn points for their team.

The final round is quickfire with all three players in the team taking part together facing all three experts.

The winning team goes through to the next round, and if they reach the final they will be in with a chance of winning a cash prize and being crowned Knowitalls champion.

Executive Producer is Phil Parsons, and Series Producer is Barrie Kelly.
