British commercial broadcaster ITV has commissioned “the world’s smallest physical gameshow” from London-based TV and digital producer Youngest Media.
In Small Fortune, hosted by Dermot O’Leary (pictured), contestants play games within miniaturized worlds, including tiny versions of Stonehenge and Coronation Street‘s Rovers Return Inn. Avoiding minuscule mistakes could mean winning the £50,000 (US$65,750) prize awarded in each episode.
Tom Locking serves as series producer, with David Flynn and Michelle Woods executive producing for Youngest Media. Small Fortune was commissioned for ITV by commissioning editor Joe Mace and assistant commissioner Sam Crack.
“With huge emotion and massive jeopardy as players put everything on the line, we’re hoping our tiny gameshow is the next big thing,” said Flynn, Youngest Media co-founder, in a statement.
Filming will begin at Pinewood Studios in England this December.
