Challenge goes for Norton 'clips' show
Virgin Media Television-owned Challenge has signed an exclusive deal with So Television to create a brand new archive television series called NortonLand, which will showcase the best games from Graham Norton’s nightly show on Channel 4.

The series will feature celebrities including Britney Spears, Val Kilmer, Kiefer Sutherland, Diana Ross, Christian Slater, Kim Cattrall and Charlotte Church; and includes Maria McErlane, voice of EuroTrash, as the ‘tour guide’ in the animated NortonLand theme park.

Challenge has commissioned So Television to produce 30 half-hour episodes of the show which will air exclusively on the channel from Monday August 6.

Celia Taylor, director of programmes for Virgin 1, Bravo, Bravo 2, Trouble and Challenge, said: "It's a brilliant use of archive and incredibly funny, and stars one of Britain's best loved performers - what more can you ask for? I'm sure Challenge viewers will welcome it wholeheartedly as unashamed entertainment with a great new twist.”

Executive producers are Elizabeth Murphy, Challenge and Graham Stuart, So Television. Producer is Tom Miller, So Television.
