Based on the hit format from the US, King of the Nerds is new to Sky 1 this autumn and is now available for sponsorship.
King of the Nerds will bring eleven of the sharpest minds from across the nerd spectrum, together in "Nerdvana". Here they will go head to head in series of physical and mental challenges, designed to sort the weak from the Geek! As one of Sky 1's own UK commissions, King of the Nerds, would allow a band to extend their partnership further, through activation beyond broadcast. This would enable the sponsor to increase their reach, and by integrating the brand with the show, the sponsor would be able to benefit from being more closely aligned with the programme
This form of competitive reality show is a favourite among audiences, frequently bringing in a large and loyal viewership, and lighting up the social media world with discussion and debate. With its focus on the competition between some the countries sharpest minds, King of the Nerds will indubitably garner a similarly loyal following and create an equivalent buzz on social media networks. This sponsorship will therefore enable a brand to target a loyal and engaged audience and further extend their reach by means of the shows talkability.
