Lucky Pics, a joint venture with Brainpool, a Banijay Group company, today announces Catch. The new SAT.1 sports event show will star Luke Mockridge in Germany and launches later this year.
A game everyone is familiar with, Catch will be a gruelling, high-energy physical game format. The new entertainment series sees four celebrity-led teams fight it out for eight rounds in a game of “catch”. Overcoming walls, containers and a number of other obstacles, the teams will comprise course specialists and top athletes.
SAT.1 Managing Director, Kaspar Pflüger says: “With ‘CATCH! Fun Friday is becoming Catch Friday! Everyone knows how to play catch. Everyone has played it or still plays it with their children today. But what very few people know is that there are an infinite number of different rules, disciplines and game concepts. With this sports event show, we are bringing a whole new tone to SAT.1 Friday. And if you are familiar with Luke’s sporting ambition, you know it’s gonna be a really hot fight.”
Luke Mockridge: “I like the combination of child’s play and serious sporting competition. Everyone has played catch in the past and has their own personal approach to it. My comedy often deals with topics that everyone knows about and to which everyone has an emotional connection. I look very forward to this ‘Event Show’ challenge.”
Luke Mockridge provided the idea for the show and CATCH! will be produced by Lucky Pics, a Brainpool company. The format rights are owned by Banijay Group.
