Payday

payday (15/20)
18.30–19.00

Contining this week on Five is the primetime game show hosted by Sony Radio Award-winning DJ and Five football anchorman Colin Murray, transmitting each weeknight. Eight players enter the game with one mission in mind: to work out who earns what. If they get it right –it’s Payday!

The players know absolutely nothing about each other’s lives, but have jobs that range from bin-man to bio-chemist and taxi driver to tax inspector, with wage packets ranging from £10,000 to £100,000. As the game progresses, the players will learn not to trust their first impressions of each other – everyone has been chosen carefully and somone who appears to be a low earner might actually make a lot of money, and vice versa. Each player must glean as much information about their opponents as possible and then attempt to calculate how much they earn.

Snap judgements, prejudice, and general knowledge all feature as each player tries to identify the high earners from the low earners in order to pocket the most money.

five’s payday bonanza

Five is set to launch Payday – a brand new primetime weekday quiz that gives eight players the chance of winning one of their fellow contestants’ annual salaries, it was announced today (FRI).

Produced by Two Four Productions, Payday is hosted by award winning DJ Colin Murray and will transmit on weekday nights from Tuesday 29th May, at 6.30pm.

Colin Murray said: “What excites me about Payday is that it combines traditional questions and answers with a unique game of strategy and, more importantly, we finally get to ask people how much money they earn without getting slapped!”

The eight contestants – who know nothing about each other’s lives – will have jobs that range from bin-man to bio-chemist and taxi driver to tax inspector with wage packets ranging from £10,000 to £100,000.

Snap judgements, prejudice, and general knowledge all feature as each player tries to identify the high earners from the low earners in order to pocket the most money.

Five’s Deputy Commissioning Editor of Features and Entertainment

Alex Menzies said: “We’re all intrigued by the incomes of others – and equally you just can’t help but have an opinion when it comes to what a stranger might do for a living or who might earn the big bucks. Every game tests whether players are right to judge a book by its cover and it’s this compelling twist, the life-changing cash prize and the general knowledge element which make Payday such an exciting format for Five.”

Payday is a Two Four production for Five. The Executive Producers are Stuart Murphy and Melanie Leach and the Series Producer is Simon Horne.
