Tipping Point gets second commission from ITV1

Posted on 19th October 2012

Following a hit first series earlier this year ITV Daytime has commissioned a second extended series of RDF Television’s Tipping Point for 2013 

BEN SHEPHARD returns to present the quiz show (40x'60) centred around an extraordinary machine filled with counters worth thousands of pounds.

A game of knowledge, skill and tactics; players must answer questions to win turns on the machine. Get a question wrong and the machine won’t pay out, resulting in the player with the least amount of money at the end getting eliminated.

The last player standing goes head to head with the Tipping Point machine and they’ll be focussed on just one counter – the jackpot disc. Again, answering questions for the right to play the machine, they’ll win a big cash sum if they can make it release the jackpot counter.

Tipping Point is an RDF Television commission for ITV1. It was commissioned by ITV Director of Factual and Daytime Alison Sharman and ITV Commissioning Editor for Factual and Daytime, Diana Howie. The Executive Producers for RDF are  Jim Allen, Peter Usher, and Hugh Rycroft.

ITV Commissioning Editor for Factual and Daytime, Diana Howie said:      

“We are delighted with the success of the first series of Tipping Point and are very much looking forward to bringing viewers a second extended series."
