UK commercial broadcaster ITV has ordered a new daytime quizshow in which teams made up from different generations of the same family compete to win a cash prize.
Don’t Blow the Inheritance (10x60′) challenges older players to build their “inheritance.” But the team that has the most money can only take it home if the younger player doesn’t lose it in the final round.
The show is produced by 12 Yard Productions, whose credits include Eggheads, Coach Trip, In It To Win It and Holding Out For a Hero.
Andy Culpin, Michael Mannes and Matt Walton will exec produce alongside series producer Andrew Musson.
Don’t Blow the Inheritance was commissioned by Alison Sharman, ITV director of factual and daytime, and Katy Thorogood, commissioner for daytime and factual.
Thorogood said: “It’s great to be able to try out new quiz formats with our daytime viewers and this series promises some interesting twists, particularly if the kids blow the inheritance.”
Filming is due to start next month.
