Legendary quiz show Fifteen To One will be returning to Channel 4 for three more series. The Remedy Productions (part of the Argonon group) commission includes a total of 100 x 60’ episodes for daytime. The third series will TX on Channel 4 this summer.
Broadcaster and comedian Sandi Toksvig will return to host the fast-paced, relentless battle also known as TV’s toughest general knowledge quiz. Fifteen contestants start the game, only one can win.

Ed de Burgh, Commissioning Editor for Entertainment at Channel 4 said, “Sandi is undoubtedly one of Britain’s toughest quiz mistresses and we are delighted to welcome both her and the show back to the channel for three more series. We look forward to seeing Britain’s smartest quiz minds take on the Fifteen To One challenge.”
