Script Details


One of the most successful gameshow formats in the world

With over 25,000 episodes produced globally,
In France, Australia, Spain, South Africa and more. setting a Guinness Book World’s Record for Most Series of a TV Gameshow Broadcast.

Here’s how it works:

Teams of two compete against the clock and each other to solve math and word puzzles in the allotted time.

In the Letters Round, teams must make the longest word possible from a random assortment of consonants and vowels.

In the Numbers Round, they must add, subtract, multiply, and divide the given numbers to reach a randomly chosen target.

Teams with the longest word or the correct combination of numbers earn points, and most points wins. It’s that simple.

And now, after 30 record-breaking years on the air in the UK, the primetime comedy spinoff 8 Out of Ten Cats Does Countdown has revolutionized the franchise for a new generation. It’s a comedic twist on a proven format…

With a wide millennial following,…

Four successful seasons…

and even higher ratings than the original show!

This isn’t your average quiz show.

The contestants are comedians…
the host is a distraction…
and the prizes are nonsense.

Oh, and the Vanna White-type off to the side? She isn’t just window dressing. That’s Rachel Reilly, and she’s a certified genius. Get the answer wrong, and she’ll slap you down.

It’s like doing brainteasers with your funniest friends

8 Out of Ten Cats Does Countdown is already so popular in America that with no promotion and no traditional media outlet, the show already boasts 1.2 million U.S. views per episode on YouTube alone.

With the popularity of shows like @Midnight and Hollywood Game Night…

The time is right to tap into this growing millennial audience.

With a new host…

New resident experts…

And a rotating panel of America’s hottest comedians and recognizable comic actors!

With opportunities for social engagement…

and second screen experience

The possibilities for expansion are endless!

It’s edgy, brain-teasing fun for a new generation.

This is… COUNTDOWN!
