It’s the playground favourite, supercharged

Everyone has a memory playing tag. Very few remember it quite like this.

Welcome to the Ultimate Tag arena: where high-octane thrills, spills and physically spectacular feats guaranteed to give you chills are par for the course. This is a game that takes the universally loved game we grew up with and flips it, and often its competitors, on their heads. 

Australians from all walks of life are set to put the pedal to the mettle, stepping up to the challenge against superhero Pro Taggers, who include some of the world’s most renowned parkour stars, sports champions, sprinters, gymnasts and martial arts pros determined to give whatever it takes to win.

The world’s fastest game takes place across six Heats, three Semi Finals and one epic Grand Final, and promises to be like nothing you’ve ever seen before. 

Players must run, spin, dodge, tumble and dive their way around huge obstacle courses in the Ultimate Tag arena, with every course and run getting more intense and challenging. The courses – Survival Tag, Gravity Tag, Revenge Tag, The Wall, Stealth Tag, Dodge Tag, The Alley and The Vortex – are all designed to push Pro Taggers and Players to their absolute limits.

The last standing male and female Player will take home a life-changing $100,000 prize money as well as the title of Australia’s first Ultimate Tag Champion. 

Will anyone have what it takes to reign supreme in this supercharged contest?

Anchoring the series are hosts Matt Shirvington and Abbey Gelmi along with commentator Bill Woods, who will follow all the explosive action in the arena.  

Ultimate Tag is coming soon on Channel 7 and 7plus.

Kerry Stokes AC, Seven West Media Chairman

Like our new, market-leading partnership with Google, our agreement with Facebook is an important part of the strategy to transform our company and build Australia’s leading news and entertainment content business.

Single mum vaults into the arena

By SEVEN

Ex-gymnast takes on a superhero with a parallel past

Single mum Michelle is entering the Ultimate Tag arena to inspire her children and show them anything is possible.

As a teenager, Michelle held a scholarship at the Australian Institute of Sport in gymnastics, where she had her sights set on the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. When chronic fatigue crushed her immune system and her dreams, Michelle drifted away from sport.

Despite adversity, Michelle’s yet to wave her white flag, getting back on the (pommel) horse to prove that no challenge is too great, not even the Ultimate Tag arena!

Of course it’s not called gym-nice-tics for a reason, which Pro Tagger Supernova knows all too well, having represented Australia for over 10 years internationally. Since beginning gymnastics at six-years-old, Supernova has been in three World Championship teams and held the Australian Beam Champion title for the past five years.

Michelle will certainly have to bend over backwards to avoid the superhero with a similar past.

Hosts Abbey Gelmi and Matt Shirvington will cover all the electrifying action of the fastest game on the planet as we find Australia’s Ultimate Tag Champions.

Tanila’s banking on Ultimate Tag glory

By SEVEN

Can a bank manager outrun a superhero?

Tanila is a bank manager on a mission: to prove that David can beat Goliath. But is his mouth writing cheques his body can’t cash in the Ultimate Tag arena?

He’ll find out fast as he takes on some of the fiercest Pro Taggers in the game, including Hammer and The Bulldog. Real-life superhero, Hammer, has an incredible wingspan of nearly two metres, while The Bulldog’s bark is just as bad as his bite. 

This bank manager must count on every skill in his reserve to take on his biggest challenge yet.

Ultimate Tag takes the playground game we know and love to a whole new level – a blockbuster tournament in outrageous arenas between everyday Aussies and blisteringly fast pros. The goal? Just don’t get caught.

Will Tanila’s number be up, or will he manage to evade the Pro Taggers and stay on course for a windfall of $100,000?

The true crime drama event of 2021

By SEVEN

How did a game show bring down a serial killer?

From the multi-award-winning makers of global hits Line of Duty and Bodyguard, comes monster UK hit and true crime drama event: The Pembrokeshire Murders.

This gripping three-part series brings to life the extraordinary cold case pursuit of the most notorious serial killer in Welsh history, a former farm labourer dubbed the “Bullseye Killer”.

The Pembrokeshire Murders tells the true story of Operation Ottawa, a cold case investigation into two double murders from the 1980s, which took place in Pembrokeshire, South Wales. It is based Catching The Bullseye Killer, a book by Steve Wilkins who was the senior investigating officer in the case. 

In 2006, the newly promoted Detective Superintendent Steve Wilkins decided to reopen both cases. Employing pioneering forensic methods, Wilkins and his handpicked team found microscopic DNA and fibres that potentially linked the murders to a string of burglaries committed in the 1980s and 1990s. The perpetrator of those robberies was nearing the end of his prison sentence, but if Steve Wilkins was right, he was also a serial killer.

Could Steve and his team find enough forensic evidence to charge their suspect before he was released to potentially kill again? And what vital clue on TV game show Bullseye helped crack the case?

Luke Evans as Steve Wilkins

Starring Welsh-born Hollywood actor Luke Evans (Beauty and the Beast, The Alienist, Dracula Untold), The Pembrokeshire Murders debuted in the UK last month to critical acclaim and monster ratings, becoming ITV’s biggest new drama series since 2014 and its biggest drama launch since 2006.
