Zig Zag’s football quiz show commissioned by BT Sport

Zig Zag announces BT Sport commission

Boom! client Zig Zag Productions and Velocity Content today announce the commission by BT Sport to produce the brand-new football quiz show ‘Fan TV; Call Yourself A Fan?’.

‘FanTV; Call Yourself a Fan?’ (13 x 30’) is the new quiz show which every footie fanatic has been waiting for. Hosted by Lynsey Hipgrave and Max Rushden, ‘FanTV, Call Yourself a Fan?’ sees the biggest rivalries in the Premier League reignited as super fans of the top teams go head to head over a trivia filled half hour. As the fans answer three rounds of mettle-testing questions, no punches are pulled as the teams debate the biggest talking points of their club rivalries.

From Arsenal v Spurs to Man City v Man Utd,  bragging rights are on the line with footy facts, verbal sliding tackles and no shortage of laughs until the final whistle blows.

Zig Zag and Velocity hold the global distribution rights for the finished series and will be presenting the format this this year’s MIPCOM.

‘FanTV, Call Yourself a Fan?’ is a format that we think will work fantastically well for any territory that loves its football – and indeed any sport that attracts passionate super fans and intense rivalries. It’s great to be working with BT Sport on the first series and look forward to sharing the format and finished series with international partners next month in Cannes said Matt Graff, Managing Director of Zig Zag Productions.
