Michael Sheen’s performance as Chris Tarrant is uncanny…
ITV has shown off a first trailer for Quiz, its upcoming three-part series about the 2001 coughing scandal on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?
Michael Sheen (Good Omens) stars as host Chris Tarrant in the show, which was created by James Graham and directed by Stephen Frears. Matthew Macfadyen (Succession) stars as Major Charles Ingram, and Sian Clifford (Fleabag) is Diana Ingram.
Take a look at the trailer for the show below…
“Quiz tells the story of Major Ingram, his wife Diana and an accomplice, Tecwen Whittock, who was sitting in the audience, who were accused of cheating their way to a million pounds on the most popular game show on earth in 2001. The couple stood trial for conspiring by coughing during the recording to signify the correct answers to the multiple choice questions posed by Chris Tarrant.”
Mark Bonnar (Line Of Duty), Helen McCrory (Peaky Blinders), Michael Jibson (The Thirteenth Tale) and Aisling Bea (This Way Up) round out the rest of the cast.
And here’s Sheen on Alan Carr’s game show, There’s Something About Movies, doing an eerie impression of Tarrant:
Quiz will debut on ITV in April.
