Reality Competition Show The Traitors, Hosted By Alan Cumming, Lands at Peacock

By Rebecca Theodore-Vachon 

Peacock has ordered The Traitors, a reality competition show based on a popular Dutch series.  The show—which will go into production later this month—involves 20 contestants who come together to complete a series of challenges with the objective of earning a cash prize. But a number of the contestants—known as “The Traitors”—will meet in secret to devise a plan to eliminate their fellow players, “The Faithful.” In the game, the Faithful must figure out who the Traitors are and vote them out so they can take the prize money for themselves.

Actor Alan Cumming will host well-known reality tv stars and America’s best game players, who will compete in a game of alliances, deception and even a “murder” for a chance to win up to $250,000. The show will be set in a remote castle in the Scottish Highlands.

“In a game of secrecy, suspicion and plot twists, who better to take the helm and guide our game players through the drama and challenging missions than our very own Scot, Alan Cumming,” said Studio Lambert CEO Stephen Lambert in a statement.

The Traitors is produced by Studio Lambert Scotland with Lambert, Mike Cotton, Toni Ireland, Jack Burgess and Sam Rees Jones serving as executive producers. Sharon Vuong, evp of entertainment unscripted development, will oversee for NBCUniversal.
