The Traitors UK

Studio Lambert, BBC


- Competition Series & Game Shows

Based on a Dutch format, The Traitors UK is BBC One’s hugely addictive psychological reality competition centred around strategy, suspicion and deception. In only its first series, The Traitors UK became a word-of-mouth phenomenon – being streamed over 28 million times (and counting) on BBC iPlayer. GQ claimed that “The Traitors has nabbed Love Island’s reality TV crown”, Rolling Stone called it “the most compelling and engrossing reality show of 2022, if not of all time” and the Daily Mail declared it was “the best thing on TV for 20 years”. Unlike other versions, we were the first to use a civilian cast. The eclectic, diverse, all-ages group felt like a genuine breath of fresh air. In a wonderful display of pure talent, complimentary teamwork and a shared vision to make a competition series unlike anything else on TV – our team overcame the challenges of working in one of the most remote locations in the UK to create an unmissable smash hit.
