ABC seeks kids for What Do You Know program
Press release from ABC TV
ABC3 is on the hunt throughout Australia for 12-15 year olds with quirky, unique interests and knowledge for a fun, irreverent new game show called What Do You Know?
The 65 x 30 minute episodes produced by Australia’s Ambience Entertainment will start shooting in Sydney in mid-October.
In What Do You Know? the contestants are placed in two teams of three, each with a captain who has a real passion for a topic of their choice – be it Bollywood dancing, whales, soccer, Italian cooking or a love of birds. The rest of the team is the “brain trust” with strengths in topics such as history, sport and pop culture.
The show also has a resident DJ, who will add fresh tunes and musical games to the series.
Ambience Entertainment’s Creative Producer David Webster said “We are delighted to be working with ABC3 on this new and riveting kids game show.”
Controller of ABC Children’s Television Tim Brooke-Hunt said “What Do You Know? promises to be a great deal of fun for both the contestants and ABC3’s viewers. It’s great to have another original game show concept for our network.”
