Tagged in: Press Releases

TV favourite Lorraine Kelly turns quiz master in STV’s brand new, high pressure gameshow The Cash Machine starting on Sunday 1st September at 7pm. 
 
The new six part series, made by STV Productions, is built around a universally recognised centrepiece, the ATM.  With thousands of pounds available, contestants play to answer a series of creative and challenging questions and access the PIN number to the world’s most generous ATM.  Contestants must hold their nerve if they hope to win big as they race against time to answer questions and crack the pin.
 
Host Lorraine Kelly said: “The Cash Machine is fun, packed full of tension and great characters.  I loved presenting it and I hope that everyone enjoys watching it as much as we enjoyed making it.”
 
The series was commissioned by STV’s Director of Programme Strategy & Marketing, Stephen O’Donnell who said: “We’re delighted to bring The Cash Machine to STV viewers – Lorraine Kelly is hugely popular with our audience and we hope they will be hooked as they play along with contestants.” 
 
The format for The Cash Machine was developed by STV Productions Entertainment team and Creative Director, Entertainment, Gary Chippington is Executive Producer on the series.  The Cash Machine will be piloted initially in Scotland as part of an investment in new original content, with scope for the format to be distributed in UK and international markets.
