Comedy Central UK has greenlit the quiz format Fact Off (w/t) plus two other new shows to air on the network sometime this year.

Fact Off (w/t) is produced by Monkey, part of NBCUniversal International Studios, a division of Universal Studio Group. The quiz show (6 x 60 minutes) finds four comedians who try to outsmart one another with their knowledge of facts and trivia during a series of rounds in a bid to get their expertise onto the show’s “Wall of Facts.”

Comedy Central UK also ordered Monkey’s The Complaints Department(6 x 60 minutes), a panel show where teams of comedians discuss complaints from the British public.

In the Rumpus Media-produced Yesterday, Today & The Day Before (6 x 60 minutes), a female-led panel of popular comedy faces will dissect topical news, pop culture and funny anecdotes.

“It’s exciting to be further establishing Comedy Central UK as the go-to destination for brilliant British comedy, with new commissions that will fit perfectly within our expanding slate of originals,” Sebastian Cardwell, deputy director of programs at ViacomCBS Networks UK said in a statement.”These three new rich and varied formats with top-tier comedic talent at the heart are guaranteed to keep our audiences laughing.”

William Macdonald and Toby Brack serve as executive producers for Monkey’s Fact Off  (w/t) and The Complaints DepartmentEmily Hudd is executive producer and Lucy Topping is series producer for Rumpus Media’s Yesterday, Today & The Day Before.
