New Original Series Stars Global Quiz Champion "The Beast" in a Trivia 'Battle Of Brains.' Hosted by Brooke Burns and Produced by ITV Studios America

June 18, 2013 (Santa Monica, CA) - GSN announced today the premiere date for its original series THE CHASE, a one-hour quiz show in which three contestants battle in a fast-paced quiz competition against an all-knowing opponent, The Beast. THE CHASE will premiere on GSN on Tuesday, August 6, at 9:00 P.M. ET/PT.

At 8:00 P.M. ET/PT, GSN will air a new episode of MINUTE TO WIN IT with host Apolo Anton Ohno, followed by two new original episodes of THE CHASE starting at 9:00 P.M. ET/PT.

Based on the hit U.K. show of the same name, GSN's THE CHASE is hosted by actress and television host Brooke Burns, known for her starring roles on "Baywatch" and "Melrose Place" and for her hosting duties on the game show "Dog Eat Dog" (now airing on GSN) and on the GSN pilot "Where Have You Been All My Life?" She was last seen in the starring role of the Lifetime movie "A Sister's Revenge." Joining Burns on the show as the formidable Beast is Mark Labbett, one of the original "Chasers" in the UK version and-at 6'7" and 370 lbs, with degrees from Oxford, Exeter and Glamorgan universities-a quiz giant in every way.


You can run, but you cannot hide, The Beast is always coming after you. In THE CHASE, a team of three contestants attempts to amass as much money as possible by answering quick-fire questions in a 60-second round. The money earned will go towards a team bank. Why the urgency? Because The Beast is always lurking, ready to pounce. The Beast - quite simply -- is a quiz genius. The job of this intimidating presence is to catch each contestant by answering more questions than his opponents to ensure they are not able to bank their money. It's a role he executes with ruthless efficiency. In the final round, the teammates who have survived the initial chase collectively play against The Beast in an epic David vs. Goliath battle for the entire amount that they have banked.

THE CHASE is produced by ITV Studios America with Bob Boden (Don't Forget the Lyrics, Family Game Night, Greed) serving as Executive Producer.
