Fox Orders A Pilot Of UK Gameshow The Chase
ITV Studios in London where the UK version of The Chase is filmed
are prepairing for the Americans!
The Chase is a popular daily, daytime game show in the UK which out performed The Weakest Link from the BBC.
US contestants will fly to London for the pilot which is to be filmed on 15th May in front of a British audience.
The show sees four contestants face tough, quick-fire questions to build up their prize money, but if the chaser – a seasoned quizmaster – catches them, they are out of the game. The players then unite to tackle the chaser and share the pot of cash if they keep ahead in the final round.
Law & Order: UK - Season Three
"In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate
yet equally important groups. The police who investigate crime, and the Crown Prosecution Service
who prosecute the offenders."
The cream of British acting talent are back together for the third season of the hugely successful 'Law & Order: UK'. The programme covers diverse storylines taken from the original hit US series but all with a distinctly British perspective. Now the teams are back to solve more perplexing crimes and bring the perpetrators to justice.
A change of cast for the Order team sees new members Peter Davison (Henry Sharpe, Director of the CPS) and Dominic Rowan (Jacob Thorne, Senior Crown Prosecutor).
Law & Order: UK Season Three premieres on Wednesday, August 17th at 9pm ET/PT on BBC America.
Law & Order: UK - Season Two
Our very own Bradley Walsh is DS Ronnie Brooks, a real East End London, copper’s copper, friend and partner to the charming DS Matt Devlin, Jamie Bamber (Battlestar Galactica, The Last Detective, Ultimate Force) whose approach to policing is part seduction part force. Both report to DI Natalie Chandler (Harriet Walter, Morris: A Life With Bells On, Broken Lines, Atonement) a working mum who would back them to the end.
While the CPS (Crown Prosecution Service - prosecutes criminal cases investigated by the police in England and Wales and exists to ensure that wrongdoers are brought to justice) team comprises Freema Agyeman (Dr Who, Torchwood, Little Dorrit) as hard working, strong-willed young prosecutor Alesha Phillips; Ben Daniels (The Passion, The State Within, Cutting It) as dedicated Senior Crown Prosecutor James Steel, a man on a mission for justice; and Bill Paterson (Little Dorrit, Criminal Justice, Sea of Souls) as their respected boss CPS director George Castle, a man trying to balance his ideals with the bigger picture.
