On the heels of U.K.’s BBC One ordering new game-show series The Brightest Briton last week, Zodiak USA is taking out an U.S. version of the format. The Brightest Briton, slated for U.K.’s highest-rated Saturday night, will scour the country to find the most intelligent person in Britain. The game-show, which will go through preliminary rounds and a semi-final leading to the final round, will feature contestants from all walks of life having their brain power rather than general knowledge tested with mental tests as well as visual and physical challenges. The U.S. version will be pitched to all major networks next week.
