Fox Plots ‘Revolution,’ Orders U.S. Pilot of Game Show on Wheels (EXCLUSIVE)

Show has inline skaters, BMXers and skateboarders compete inside a purpose-built arena

Revolution” could be coming to Fox after the network greenlit a U.S. pilot of the U.K.-originated game show on wheels.

The British series is being made for pay-TV giant Sky’s flagship channel. The format has inline skaters take on skateboarders and BMXers in competition over several rounds in an indoor arena, with ensuing thrills and spills. The British version is being made in a huge warehouse outside London and will go out on Sky in early 2018.

Revolution” was created by Znak & Co., the U.K.-U.S. production company founded by Natalka Znak. She is the former ITV executive behind “I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here” and “Love Island.” She also worked on “Hell’s Kitchen” in the U.K. and exec-produced the first two seasons of the Gordon Ramsay show on Fox.

Znak will exec-produce the U.S. “Revolution,” alongside Glenn Coomber (“Strictly Come Dancing”) and Jenny Stephenson (“Ninja Warrior”). Motion Content Group, the programming arm of advertising giant Group M, is making the original British show with Znak & Co. and and has also boarded the U.S. pilot. Motion CEO Richard Foster is an exec producer.

Sky backs Znak & Co., which is based in London and L.A. Sky Vision handles international sales of “Revolution” with Motion, but the production company is thought to have done the deal directly with Fox. The broadcaster confirmed it had ordered a pilot.

Another possible trans-Atlantic project in the works at Fox is “Man vs. Machine,” from British indie Tuesday’s Child. The show would see humans take on robots in various challenges and has been in early development at the network, but a pilot order is contingent upon the successful development of the machines that would feature in the show.
