Published Jul 3 2012, 20:32 BST | By Tom Eames Tim Vine
has signed up to host a new quiz show for ITV1.
The comedian will front the new family-based game show, currently under the working title of Don't Blow the Inheritance
, reports Comedy.co.uk
The format of the show will see different generations of a family working together in order to win big prizes.
Producers described the show by saying: "The older generation (parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles) battle to build their Inheritance Prize Fund up with thousands of pounds ready to pass on to the next generation (children, grandchildren, nephews and nieces).
"However... the younger generation team mate can only take the Inheritance Prize Pot home if they don't 'blow it all' at the end of the game! It's down to the younger generation to answer the final questions correctly so they can keep the cash rather than blowing all of mum, dad or granny's hard work!"
It will be made by 12 Yard, the company behind shows such as Eggheads
and Who Dares Wins
The show will be recorded at the end of July, to be broadcast later this year. Hopefuls can apply to be on the show by visiting the ITV website.
The hosting gig will be Vine's first role on TV since quitting BBC comedy Not Going Out after six years in May
Tim Vine previously hosted Channel 5's launch night in 1997, as well as the channel's quiz show Whittle
. He also fronted Channel 4's Fluke
