Cheat, a new quiz show being announced by Netflix, is set to be filmed in front of a studio audience and hosted by actor Danny Dyer and comedian Ellie Taylor.
Netflix describes the new production as being “a high-stakes quiz show where contestants can literally cheat their way to a fortune […]. In every episode, four brave players have their knowledge put to the ultimate test, as they fight it out over three rounds to avoid elimination and build a jackpot worth up to £50,000. But there’s one crucial twist […] if you don’t know the answer… it pays to cheat!”
Dyer commented: “This is a great new series and there’s no quiz show better suited for me; expect enormous wins, loads of slippery people cheating and banter with the one and only, Ellie Taylor”
Taylor added: “I’m so excited to join Cheat and the Netflix family. Cheat has all the elements I want in a quiz show; great questions, unashamed cheating and Danny Dyer calling me ‘Treacle’ at least once per episode. I can’t wait to get started.”
The show will be produced by Talkback label Fremantle and launch on Netflix in 2023.
