ITV Studios indies Possessed and 12 Yard are to co-produce a new Jason Manford-fronted quiz, Unbeatable, for BBC One Daytime

In the quiz, the four contestants can always give an answer but can they give the ‘Unbeatable’ answer and streak ahead of the competition to win a cash prize?

Unbeatable is filmed in Glasgow. It will broadcast on BBC One afternoons later this year.

Jason Manford says: “I know how important daytime quizzes are for a lot of people, I used to sit with my Nana Manford and mum watching them, they keep the brain going, they’re a chuckle and I’m really looking forward to being a part of this exciting brand new one. The great thing about Unbeatable is you don’t even need to know the actual answer to appear clever. I feel like this is the quiz show I’ve been waiting for my whole life.”

Carla-Maria Lawson, BBC Head of Daytime and Early Peak, says: “Unbeatable is a real treat for Daytime’s quiz savvy viewers who love to play along, and with Jason at the helm we can promise there’ll also be plenty of laughs along the way.”

Nick Mather, Creative Director of Possessed, says: “Unbeatable sees players pit their answers against one another in battles that test their knowledge and ultimately the courage of their convictions. Do they believe they have the Unbeatable answer? You can never predict what will happen and yet Jason Manford, always has a brilliant off the cuff joke up his sleeve. Unbeatable game and Unbeatable host!”

Unbeatable is a 50×45 series for BBC One. The format was devised by Possessed for BBC One. The Executive Producers are Zoë Tait and Glenn Hugill. It was commissioned by Carla-Maria Lawson, Head of BBC Daytime and Early Peak, and Alex McLeod, Commissioning Editor BBC Daytime and Early-Peak.
