Leonie Lowe, managing director at Lune Media said: “I’m thrilled to be working with Shaun again on this exciting new series. It is the third time we have collaborated, and our partnership has always been both respectful and successful. I really admire his passion and commitment to his work and the team.

“Viewers will see Shaun’s natural ability to engage and encourage the young contestants with his unique mix of quick-fire humour and razor-sharp wit.”

Over ten weeks Shaun Micallef’s Brain Eisteddfod brings together eighteen schools from around Australia and will pit their best and brightest Year 11 students against each other to determine Australia’s biggest brains. 

Teams of three will combine for testing of their knowledge on a range of subjects from english, mathematics, history, foreign languages to biology and economics, and more for a fiercely contested one hour of entertainment.

Shaun Micallef said: “I’ve always believed there was intelligent life on this planet, and I am delighted and proud to be part of Channel 10’s efforts to discover it right here in Australia. Also, I was once a Year 11 student myself and will be using my old notes to double-check the answers.” 

Shaun Micallef’s Brain Eisteddfod is a Lune Media production in association with Giant Baby for Network 10 Australia. The series is based on an original concept from Giant Baby and Lune Media. Executive producers are David Galloway, Shaun Micallef, and Leonie Lowe.
