Win a mediocre prize, with Rob Brydon

New BBC One Saturday night pilot

Rob Brydon is piloting a new BBC One Saturday night game show – in which all the prizes are ‘mediocre’.

The primetime comedy entertainment show is the comic’s next project after BBC Two dropped his talk show, after audiences slipped.

The as-yet-untitled show will involve two members of the public competing for the unusual prizes on television, aided by five guest stars from the world of sport, music, television and film.

A pilot episode is to be recorded in front of a studio audience in Salford later this month. Click here to apply for free tickets.

Brydon also hosts the BBC One panel show Would I Lie To You, and has recorded a second series of The Trip with Steve Coogan in Italy.
