STV Productions, TV3 Studios and GroupM Entertainment are to co-produce quiz show The Lie, to be broadcast on STV and TV3.

The 16 x 30” episodes (ten for TV3 and six for STV) will air in 2014 with studio filming starting this December in TV3’s new Sony HD studio in Dublin.

The Lie was developed from an original concept by Grant Keen. The  general knowledge quiz involves two teams of contestants competing to win a cash prize by identifying the one lie from a set of otherwise true statements.

Comedian Susan Calman will host the Scottish version of the programme, with the host of the Irish version to be announced in the coming weeks.

The series will be executive produced by Gary Chippington for STV Productions, Andrew Byrne for TV3 Studios and Abigail Adams and Richard Foster for GroupM Entertainment.

STV Productions also makes Catchphrase for ITV and Fake Reaction for ITV2.

Jeff Ford, TV3 group director of content, said: “This is TV3 Studios first co-production and first venture into big shiny floor studio quiz shows. The format of The Lie is fast paced and addictive – a show we hope resonates with viewers not just in Scotland and Ireland but potentially worldwide.”

Richard Foster, md GME said: “We’re delighted to be working again with Jeff Ford in his new role at TV3 and continuing our relationship with STV Productions by supporting the series for both broadcasters.”

Commissions in the Sony HD Studio include new shiny floor game shows The Lie and Pressure Point. TV3 is also currently in discussions with a number of production companies in relation to a proposed new soap opera planned for 2015.
