Entertainment One (eOne), Keller/Noll and Hasbro Studios will produce a new competitive series, Boggle Battle based on the classic Hasbro game.
Show creators Cleve Keller and Dave Noll have reinvent the wordplay game by combining its gameplay with pop culture topics to create a fast-paced television experience. Boggle Battle puts contestants’ pop culture knowledge to the test, as three teams of three face off in elimination rounds, with categories ranging from Harry Potter and Marvel to Game of Thrones and the NBA.
The game takes place in a new super-sized, colorful version of the Boggle board.
As the game progresses, players face increasing levels of difficulty and multiple rounds of elimination. Each episode builds towards one team moving on to play a final round of Super Boggle, and a chance to win big prizes. Boggle Battle will also feature play-along moments for audiences at home.
“The Boggle game has always been a crowd favorite, and Cleve and Dave have a found an innovative and engaging way to bring the addictive game to television,” said Tara Long, EVP, alternative programming, eOne Television, in a statement. “The unique, fast-paced gameplay will appeal to audiences in the U.S. and around the world.”
Boggle Battle is executive produced by John Morayniss and Tara Long for eOne; Keller and Noll for Keller/Noll; and Josh Feldman for Hasbro Studios. Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner and COO Stephen Davis are also producers on the project. Keller/Noll is represented by Ross Raphael, Collin Reno and Amir Shahkhalili from WME.
