Grant Denyer to host Ten's GAME OF GAMES
Network Ten is thrilled to announce that Gold Logie nominee Grant Denyer will host TEN’s big new family entertainment series, GAME OF GAMES, set to premiere on TEN and WIN Network later this year.
Grant will bring his signature enthusiasm and hilarious commentary to the Australian
version of the hit US show GAME OF GAMES, which is hosted and produced by Ellen DeGeneres in the US.
Network Ten Chief Content Officer, Beverley McGarvey, said: “We are delighted that Grant Denyer has agreed to host GAME OF GAMES. He is the perfect person to lead a show that is packed full of big fun, big physical entertainment, big laughs and big cash prizes.”
Grant Denyer said: “Ellen is an idol of mine, so to land this opportunity makes me so excited I’m dizzy! GAME OF GAMES is a smash hit in America. It’s wildly fun and something completely brand new and different for Australia. I can’t wait to step on set and run amuck with this.”
“Of course Ellen is famous for causing havoc with her crazy studio games, and GAME OF GAMES is the mother of them all. A next level stadium spectacular, with the ridiculousness
cranked up to eleven. Think, the game ‘Mousetrap’ but with real humans. That level of
crazy! It’s super fun & Aussies are gonna love it.”
An entertainment show like no other, GAME OF GAMES, was an out-of-the-box success when
it launched in the US in January this year, attracting a weekly audience of more than eight
million and ranking #1 in its timeslot in people 18 to 49.
Each hour-long episode of GAME OF GAMES includes supersized versions of the most popular
and action-packed games from the award-winning daytime talk show The Ellen DeGeneres
Contestants, who are pulled directly from the audience, have to manoeuvre massive
obstacles, answer questions under crushing time pressure and face gigantic plunges into the
unknown — all in a quest to win a big cash prize. The thrill of the pressure cooker situations
and the instant wins will keep audiences on the edge of their seats.
GAME OF GAMES is a Warner Bros International TV Production Australia production for
