Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Turn On The TV...

Your favourite quiz show host is back!

For Immediate Release

* Buzz goes BIG Time with the BIG Quiz

  • New characters, new questions...same great host!
  • More bang for your Buzzer!

Rumours have been rife amongst TV industry sources for some time, but today it can be confirmed that Buzz, the enigmatic and debonair host of Buzz!TM: The Music Quiz has signed a new contract with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE).

Buzz will be fronting a new game show called Buzz!TM: The BIG Quiz which builds on the huge success of his famous music show as it seeks to push contestants to the limit. This time the questions could be on anything, with picture, audio and video clips covering subjects from film and sport through to music and Buzz's own brand of crazy general knowledge. And of course there'll be plenty of questions about Buzz's celebrity friends!

The host himself did his best to hide his excitement when our interviewer cornered him. He modestly commented: "After the success of my groundbreaking new format show Buzz!: The Music Quiz, I knew that SCEE would soon be back knocking at my door. I have of course had other offers but am delighted to stay with my friends at SCEE... of course this is about more than money, it's about giving full flow to my creative genius!"

The new series extends the format of Buzz's first show and cranks up the tension by giving contestants more chances to steal points from each another... so make sure you watch your back in new rounds like 'Hitman', as well as returning favourites like 'Pass the Bomb'. Buzz's new studio also has room for up to eight players, so contestants from Buzz!: The Music Quiz can enjoy the ultimate Quiz show experience!

SCEE insiders are also set to announce that Buzz's glamorous assistant Rose will be making a return to our screens despite tabloid rumours that threatened to end her promising career. With a bigger smile and a new dress, Rose remains the ultimate gameshow babe!

Buzz!: The BIG Quiz will be arriving on our screens in March 2006 and is guaranteed to have trivia fans itching to get their fingers on the buzzers once again.
