Endemol Shine Israel, a Banijay company, today announces Reshet has ordered a new version of global hit game show, The Money Drop.
The Money Drop, one of the most successful game shows in the world, is making a return to Israel, on new broadcaster Reshet, after a decade off-air. Originally created by Remarkable Television, the format has been adapted in over 53 territories to date.
The high-stakes entertainment series sees contestants begin with a huge cash prize which they can only keep if they correctly answer multiple choice questions. If they answer incorrectly, their winnings fall through a trap door and are gone forever.
Amir Ganor, CEO of Endemol Shine Israel comments: “This format offers entertainment at its very best. After a ten-year hiatus, we can’t wait to produce this nail-biting game show with Reshet, bringing The Money Drop to a new generation of Israelis and welcoming back those that previously loved the show.”
Ami Glam, CCO Reshet 13, Head of 13Global: “The Money Drop is a game show much-loved by fans who can’t help but play along and live vicariously through the contestants. With just eight questions standing in the way of a big win, this format is packed with excitement and jeopardy.”
Endemol Shine Israel is one of Israel’s leading TV production companies. Its multi-genre formats have won great success both in the local and international markets, with its notable shows including Big Brother, Queens, Fifty, Valley of Tears and Games of Chef.
