“Eine Liga für sich – Buschis Sechserkette” is a high-energy, supersized panel show that blends sports, comedy and entertainment. Taking its cue from sports fans’ obsession with lists and statistics, every week celebrity guests join team regulars as they battle it out across three riotous rounds of sporting challenges.

No sporting topic is sacred as the teams compete to see who will come out on top, as their sporting knowledge, physical skills and competitive natures are tested to their limits.

The British Sky original “A League of Their Own” is a massive hit on Sky One with 11 seasons and two further season commissions. James Corden (“The Late Late Show”) chairs the game with team captains Jamie Redknapp and Freddie Flintoff, and comedian Jack Whitehall. The format is also commissioned for a fourth season in Denmark, and has recently aired in Norway.
