A Gold Logie nominee, children’s book author and star of The Project, in CRAMHelliar will attempt to corral two teams of comedians and celebrities as they test their memories across a series of general knowledge and current affairs categories.
“I am thrilled to be hosting the exciting new television quiz, panel, game, fantasy, family-drama, comedy CRAM,” said Helliar. “It’s something I wasn’t expecting but as soon as I started playing I was hooked immediately and wanted in. It’s highly addictive and I can imagine Aussie families taking to this as passionately as I have.”
The teams will be captained by acclaimed comedian Dilruk Jayasinha, alongside actor and singer Virginia Gay (All Saints, Winners & Losers).
“Dilruk is not only one of the hottest comedy properties around but also joyous to be around,” added Helliar. “I suspect by the time the first season is finished Dilruk will not only be a household favourite but the autocorrect on my phone will cease changing his name to ‘Soleil’.”
CRAM will be produced by ITV Studios Australia and filmed at Network Ten’s Sydney studios in front of a live audience. It will air later this year.
