Greg James is announced as the host of a new Channel 4

BBC Radio 1 DJ Greg James has been announced as the host of a new Channel 4 reality series called Rise And Fall, which is being produced by the makers of the hit series The Traitors.

The game show will feature 16 members of the public, from different walks of life and age groups, who will start the game as equals but quickly find themselves in positions of power or powerlessness.

The show’s set-up will reflect real-life power dynamics as the “grafter” contestants survive in basic conditions in a basement, while the “ruler” contestants live in a penthouse.

James will oversee the action as the grafters complete a series of physically demanding games and challenges to build a cash prize fund that only the rulers can win.

The rulers must encourage the grafters to work harder, but if they push too hard, they may find themselves toppled from power.

The other contestants will decide who rises to power and who falls, and at the end of the game, only one ruler will have the chance to win the prize fund.

James expressed his excitement for the new show, saying that he had been waiting a long time for a project like this to come along and that it was an amazing and crazy idea. He also expressed his enthusiasm for launching something brand new on Channel 4 and seeing how it all plays out.

The series is being produced by media firm Motion Content Group and production company Studio Lambert, which also produced BBC One’s The Traitors.

The show is expected to be a hit, as The Traitors drew an average of 3.3 million viewers for its finale episode. Studio Lambert’s Mike Cotton, Colin Whitaker, Kelly Lynn, and Mark James will be executive producers on Rise And Fall, while Martin Oxley will represent Motion Content Group.

Rise And Fall is set to premiere soon on Channel 4 and All 4.
