STV Productions has won its first ever commission from BBC Three, having been enlisted to produce a new panel show pilot for the channel.

'Fake Reaction', hosted by Matt Edmondson, will see six celebrities battle it out over a series of rounds where the aim is to hide their natural reaction as they face an array of unusual situations that test all of their senses

The pilot was commissioned by BBC Three controller, Zai Bennett, and executive editor of entertainment commissioning, Alan Tyler. It will be filmed at Pacific Quay in Glasgow in April.

Gary Chippington, head of entertainment for STV Productions, said: “We’re thrilled to be working with the team at BBC Three on this enormously exciting project.”

STV Productions developed the Fake Reaction format with LA-based production company Kinetic Content, with whom they have an established partnership. It is based partly on a Fuji TV game show format.
