MTV greenlights interactive game show series

April 2, 2020

MTV has commissioned a new live and interactive digital game show series titled MTV Game Night with Charlotte Crosby. The long form series will feature MTV reality TV star Crosby live from her home, as she seeks to entertain fans in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The series, consisting of 6 x 30 minute episodes, will stream live on a weekly basis from 8.30pm today across MTV International’s Facebook and YouTube channels. The series will be remotely produced by ViacomCBS Digital Studios International using cloud-based Grabyo and Zoom.

“It’s so important to be able to adapt at a moment’s notice, and it’s never been more critical than at this particularly strange and trying time.  From their couches around the UK, our incredible team is creating content remotely that we know our audience will love,” said Kerry Taylor, EVP, ViacomCBS Networks International Entertainment & Youth brands. “It’s brilliant to work with Charlotte on this – she has such a unique energy and is the perfect person to host this game night series.”

Crosby commented “I’m so excited to be hosting MTV’s live online games night – it’s going to be unreal. To make it even better, I’ll be joined online by some of my celeb pals, who will be competing against each other and you guys can play along at home too.”

Over the following weeks, MTV will also be commissioning a number of fast turnaround short form series (with 5 minute episodes), featuring a variety of well-known reality TV faces. The content will sit across MTV’s international network of digital and social platforms.
