ITV spells out future for Lingo

Lingo aired for the first time in the UK last month

UK commercial broadcaster ITV has commissioned a second season of word-themed gameshow Lingo.

One of Europe’s longest-running gameshows, Lingo comes from All3Media-owned IDTV and Talpa TV. It has aired for three decades in France and was rebooted in the Netherlands two years ago, where it had previously run for 25 years.

The format debuted in the UK last month as a 30×60’ series and a second 60×60’ season has now been commissioned.

Lingo, which is produced in the UK by All3Media’s Objective Media Group Entertainment, sees contestant pairs compete in a series of rounds for a chance to win a cash prize. The teams are pitted against each other in a quick-thinking game of words, with the stakes becoming higher and the prize money escalating in each round.

The executive producers are Objective Media Group Entertainment heads Ed de Burgh and Ben Shephard, Andrew Cartmell and Objective Media Group North’s joint creative director Pam Cavannagh.

All3Media International distributes the series.
