Banijay Italia’s 100% Heads To France For Its First AdaptationComments Off on Banijay Italia’s 100% Heads To France For Its First Adaptation
Content powerhouse Banijay today announces Banijay Production Media will produce the first adaptation of the game show format, 100% for France 2.
Originally created by Banijay Italia, the one-of-a-kind format sees contestants take turns to guess the tastes, habits, and perceptions of a panel of 100 people. It debuted on TV8 in September 2022, tripling the channel slot average for young viewers and recording stellar ratings during its 154-episode run on access primetime. As well as the regular series, TV8 aired a primetime Christmas episode and four weekly specials in March.
Hosted in France by Bruno Guillon, three celebrity duos must try to guess the most popular answers given by a wall of 100 people, present in the studio, representative of the French population. Will the contestants work together and guess the most common answers? Only the team that gives the most correct answers will have the chance to play the final round and win up to €150,000 for their preferred charity.
Nagui, Managing Director of Banijay Production Media, says: “100% is a brilliant entertainment format which probes topics from the light-hearted to the more serious. With its initial success as a buzzworthy game show in Italy, we’re expecting audiences here to love the distinctive feature of 100 people in the studio representing the preferences and opinions of French people. This unique element promises a must-watch for viewers.”
Lucas Green, Chief Content Officer, Operations at Banijay adds: “Globally we are seeing a renewed interest in game shows which have proven successful and it’s great to see 100% begin its international journey. This show delivered audiences in Italy, and with its highly adaptable format points, we are expecting the French version to be equally popular. Banijay Production Media produce high-quality entertainment series and is set to deliver another exceptional production.”
