ITV Studios’ gameshow, The Chase, returned to Stage 9 in June 2018
The show moved to our Elstree studio facility in 2014 for its eighth series and has been a frequently returning client over the past four years. Between 25 June and 15 July this year, the show is recording 26 episodes of its award-winning format. In addition, 16 episodes of The Family Chase (with each episode featuring a family working together in an attempt to outwit the Chaser) will also be facilitated.
A seven-camera configuration will capture all the action of the fast-moving general knowledge quiz rounds and the production team will also make full use of our HD facilities including production, lighting and sound galleries. The ancillary facilities provided by us include production offices, green rooms, dressing rooms and catering areas.
The production team is also returning to our Elstree production hub later in the year for the recording of an additional 180 episodes between September and December.
Hosted by Bradley Walsh, the award-winning daytime show sees four contestants work as a team answering general knowledge questions against the clock – and playing a strategic game to win a potential prize pot worth thousands of pounds. Only if they stay one step ahead of ‘The Chaser’, a ruthless general knowledge mastermind, determined to stop them winning at all costs.
