STV Productions is commissioned to make Fake Reaction for ITV2

Tagged in: Press Releases
STV Productions has been commissioned to make eight episodes of Fake Reaction, a brand new panel show, for ITV2.
 
Fake Reaction is STV Productions’ second recent commission from ITV2, following the four part series Perez Hilton Super Fan.
 
The new show is hosted by Matt Edmondson (Radio 1/ T4).  
 
Fake Reaction sees six contestants – a mix of celebrities and comedians - battle it out over a series of games where they are forced to hide their natural reaction in a series of extraordinary challenges. The teams will be challenged with an array of unusual situations that will test all of their senses. If they can conceal their true reaction and fool the rest of the panel, they win.
 
Gary Chippington, head of entertainment for STV Productions, said: “We’re sure Fake Reaction will be a brilliantly funny addition to the ITV2 schedule. The games are surprising, sometimes shocking and always funny, with a real play-along-at-home factor, and Matt Edmondson does a brilliant job as host and ringmaster.”
 
Angela Jain, director of digital channels and acquisitions, ITV, said: "We already have a relationship with Matt Edmondson on Totally Bonkers Guinness World Records so I am delighted that we are extending that to Fake Reaction a show we hope will deliver laughs and funny physical challenges."
 
STV Productions developed the Fake Reaction format with LA-based production company Kinetic Content. Fake Reaction is based partly on a Fuji TV game show format.
