“The Traitors” is the ultimate reality show competition with alums from beloved franchises facing off in a murder mystery game to win up to $250,000.

The game goes as follows: “Hidden amongst the Faithful are the Traitors, whose goal is to eliminate the Faithful and claim the prize for themselves. Under the cover of darkness, the Traitors murder the Faithful one by one in a treacherous spree, while the Faithful try to uncover the Traitors and banish them from the game. If the Faithful contestants banish all the Traitors, they will share the prize fund, but if a Traitor or Traitors makes it to the end, they will steal all the money.”

Reality TV mega-producer Stephen Lambert of Studio Lambert executive produces the series along with Mike Cotton, Sam Rees-Jones, Rosie Franks, Tim Harcourt, and Jack Burgess. Host Cumming also produces.

“The Traitors” is created by DTV, an All3Media company, and further developed with the RTL Creative Unit.
