Simon Cowell is reportedly launching a new TV show inspired by Sir Bruce Forsyth’s Generation Game called ‘Keep It In The Family’
Simon is said to have been working on the programme, entitled Keep It In The Family, for the past year. The quiz, which would be aired at teatime rather than the usual Saturday night, will feature contestants from three generations of families.
Syco Entertainment are the early stages of developing the format which will see several generations of the same family compete together to win prizes.
The Sun report that Bradley Walsh is being lined up to host the venture and a source revealed: “It’s very family-focused like the Generation Game but has a fresh feel.”
An insider close to the production confirmed to RadioTimes.com that a pilot is being shot this month, but insisted the show is still in “very, very early days” and Keep It In The Family is merely a working title.
According to The Sun, it will be hosted by former Corrie star Bradley Walsh.
Filming is said to start in February and it is hoped the show will be broadcast later this year.
A source told the paper: “It’s very family-focused like the Generation Game but has a fresh feel.”
Sir Bruce hosted the Generation Game from 1971 to 1994.
