Banijay today announces that Endemol Shine Germany, part of Banijay Germany, will produce Limitless Win (Ohne Limit) for RTL Germany. Created by Hello Dolly and co-developed and co-produced by Mitre Studios and Hello Dolly in the UK, this marks the first international adaptation of the format which has already been commissioned for a second run on ITV, hosted by Ant and Dec.
Limitless Win is a ground-breaking game show, with 6.2 million viewers tuning in to the series in the UK. With a never-ending money ladder, it’s the world’s first-ever limitless jackpot. Pairs of contestants first earn lives with a series of quick-fire questions, before taking on the limitless ladder. The answer to every question is a number, but there is no room for error, only the correct answer banks cash. Underestimating the answer loses them lives, and if they overshoot, they are eliminated. In this nail-biting game of high stakes, the contestant double-acts have the chance to walk away with a life-changing sum of money.
Endemol Shine Germany is a leading production company within its market, producing hit formats such as LEGO® Masters, Celebrity Hunted, Celebrity Big Brother, and All Together Now, as well as its own devised IP such as Masters of Sweet and Chefs to Go.
Fabian Tobias, Managing Director of Endemol Shine Germany says: “Limitless Win is the perfect addition to our slate as it is original, creative and entertaining. With the world’s first-ever limitless jackpot, there is such a lot at stake for the contestants and audiences will be on the edge of their seats!”
Hello Dolly’s Chief Executive, Victoria Ashbourne, said: “As we prepare for the next series of Ant and Dec’s Limitless Win with Mitre Studios, the news of the format being brought to German audiences is hugely exciting. We look forward to seeing how far German Contestants can climb up the limitless ladder.”
Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, Founders of Mitre Studios, said: “We’re thrilled to hear that Limitless Win is heading to Germany. It’s innovative, ground-breaking, nail-biting and fantastically play along. We love making the show and we are sure it will be as popular with the German audience as it is here in the UK.”
Banijay also holds the international global distribution rights for Limitless Win.
“Limitless Win is such a unique, nail-biting and entertaining watch for all the family, and as well as the RTL Germany format celebration, we look forward to bringing the excitement to even more markets,” adds Lucas Green, Global Head of Content Operations at Banijay.
