GSN RENEWS RATINGS PHENOM "THE CHASE" FOR THIRD SEASON

GSN's Original Series THE CHASE Has Garnered Critical Acclaim and Consistent Ratings Growth Throughout its First Two Seasons

Casting Commences Today for Season Three

March 18, 2014 (Santa Monica, CA) - GSN has renewed its hit original series THE CHASE for a third season. The one-hour quiz show, in which three contestants battle in a fast-paced competition against an all-knowing opponent known as The Beast, is produced by ITV Studios America. The network has ordered 13 episodes for season three, which is slated to air later this year. THE CHASE currently airs on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. (ET/PT).

Hosted by Brooke Burns, with Mark Labbett as the brilliant and intimidating "Beast," THE CHASE has established itself as one of GSN's most popular original series ever and has been seen by more than 15 million total viewers since its premiere in August, 2013. Throughout its second season run, THE CHASE posted impressive ratings gains including growing the total audience among Total Viewers (81%), W18-49 (61%), P25-54 (58%), W25-54 (89%) and M25-54 (35%). In addition to the stellar ratings growth, THE CHASE has also garnered critical acclaim and fervent fans alike.

Casting commences today for contestants who are ready to take on The Beast in season three. Interested contestants can submit their information and learn more about casting dates, times and locations at http://gsntv.com/casting/.

About THE CHASE:

You can run, but you cannot hide, The Beast is always coming after you. In THE CHASE, a team of three contestants attempts to amass as much money as possible by answering quick-fire questions in a 60-second round. The money earned will go toward a team bank. Why the urgency? Because The Beast is always lurking, ready to pounce. The Beast - quite simply - is a quiz show genius. The job of this intimidating presence is to catch each contestant by answering more questions than his opponents to ensure they are not able to bank their money. It's a role he executes with ruthless efficiency. In the final round, the teammates who have survived the initial chase collectively play against The Beast in an epic David vs Goliath battle for the entire amount they have banked.

THE CHASE, based on the highly successful UK format, is produced by ITV Studios America with Bob Boden, Michael Kelpie and Martin Scott serving as Executive Producers.
