TVLine Items: Cumming Hosts Traitors, Money Heist: Korea Teaser and More

Alan Cumming The Traitors

Alan Cumming will oversee a traitorous game: The Good Wife vet will host Peacock’s reality competition show The Traitors, based on the Dutch series of the same name.

Set in a remote castle in the Scottish Highlands, the program features 20 contestants competing in a series of challenges for a cash prize — but “a number of the contestants coined ‘The Traitors’ will meet in secret to devise a plan to eliminate their fellow players coined ‘The Faithful,'” per the official description. “‘The Faithful’ must figure out who is a Traitor and vote them out so they can take the prize money for themselves. If a Traitor makes it to the end, they are in with a chance of taking home the cash prize.”
