Youngest North grabs another run of Channel 4 quiz Moneybags


Channel 4 has commissioned a new series of BAFTA nominated quiz show Moneybags.

The 30-run order of 60-minute programmes will once again be produced by Youngest North, Youngest Media’s recently launched Leeds-based hub, and filmed at dock10 studios in MediaCityUK.

The series has been recommissioned through Channel 4’s Global Format Fund, the ringfenced spend designed to stimulate the creation of original new formats from UK-based indies for UK and International audiences.

Hosted by Craig Charles, Moneybags is a high-stakes quiz that tests contestants’ ability to think quickly as they answer each question by grabbing the moneybag with the correct answer as it passes along a conveyor belt in front of them.

Those who grab the right answer earn that bag’s value, which can be anything from £1,000 to £100,000 – but they can lose everything by picking up the wrong bag.

Executive producer David Flynn, of Youngest Media, said: “After such a well-received first series we’re so glad to be bringing the drama, fun and jeopardy of Moneybags back to Channel 4. With £1million on the line once again every week, Craig Charles will challenge more contestants to grab themselves a fortune and change their lives.”

Jayne Stanger, Commissioner, Daytime and Features said: “We’re so excited to bring back Moneybags after the first series received an amazing reception. It is great to have Craig back on board to give our daytime viewers more quick-fire quizzing and tense moments.”
