  1. Banijay’s Quiz Format, Chacun Son Tour Travels to Spain

    Leave a Comment

    Banijay today announces that Gestmusic, part of Banijay Iberia, will co-produce the first international adaptation of Chacun son Tour (known in Spain as Te ha tocado) with RTVE. La 1 will air the daily game show, which was created by French label, Banijay Production Media.

     

    The original French version of Chacun son Tour launched last year on France 2. Fronted by Bruno Guillon, the 250-episode run was the number one show in its slot for global and young demos, increasing audience numbers week-on-week. In Spain it will be hosted by Raúl Gómez.

     

    Tinet Rubira, Managing Director of Gestmusic says: “Bringing great entertainment to Spain is part of our DNA and Chacun son Tour has all the key components for a high-energy, pulse raising game show. To top it off, we have great contestants ready to play, test out their tactics and share hilarious anecdotes.”

     

    Lucas Green, Global Head of Content Operations at Banijay adds: “Chacun son Tour is a hugely entertaining and family-friendly format, combining general knowledge and fun physical challenges, to deliver a sense of jeopardy with humorous moments for the entire family to enjoy. After a successful launch in France, we have no doubt the Spanish audience will be hooked with this first local adaptation.”

     

    The format features 30 members of the public who are all in with the chance of winning big.  Two players are randomly selected and go head-to-head in a tense duel of general knowledge. The winner then secures a place at Winning Alley where they attempt to nab prizes by throwing a ball into a winning slot. The winner then faces a new randomly selected player, and the games continue until the end of the show where the final round winner has one shot; a one slot throw in Golden Alley to take home an accumulated prize pot. However, in Chacun son Tour, losing the duel doesn’t mean it is over, as your name can be chosen again in the following episode. Will the contestants choose to play the long game, outsmart the other contestants, and take home a larger sum, or instead will they take their chance earlier on?

     

    Gestmusic will build on their expertise, having previously produced award-winning formats such as Your Face Sounds Familiar, The Money Drop, Operación Triunfo, Top Gamers and Boom!, amongst others.

    Banijay today confirms Atrapa un millón (The Money Drop) has been commissioned for a new run byAtresmedia after a seven-year hiatus. Gestmusic, a Banijay Iberia company, will once again produce the format which returns soon to Spain.

     

    International hit-format, The Money Drop, is a high-stakes game show where a pair of contestants are given their prize at the start of the show – bundles of real cash. Just eight questions stand between them and their chance to take home the money. All they have to do is keep hold of it.

     

    Played out on the Drop – a fiendish device with four trapdoors, on which the answers to each question are displayed – contestants must correctly answer general knowledge questions if they want to retain their prize. As the questions get progressively harder, will the contestants be brave enough to place the money on one answer or play it safe and spread the wealth across several? If they put their money on the right trap, they could walk away with a life-changing sum of money, but if wrong, they will watch it fall into the void…

     

    Tinet Rubira, Managing Director of Gestmusic comments: “Having last produced The Money Drop in 2014, the revival will be everything the Spanish audience loved about the original show, with a new modern feel. Full of suspense and drama, you can’t help but become invested in the contestant’s journey.”

     

    Lucas Green, Global Head of Content Operations at Banijay says:The Money Drop consistently delivers high-quality entertainment with the core game show pillars of excitement and jeopardy that captivate audiences. Following a successful revival earlier this year in Israel, it’s fantastic to see another return, demonstrating the format’s timeless appeal.”

     

    Originally created in 2010 by Remarkable TV, part of Banijay UK, The Money Drop has been adapted in over 54 territories including the U.S. and France. In Poland, the 22nd season of Endemol Shine Poland’s show for TVP2 consolidated at +73% on slot average and the successful reboot in Israel returned after a decade off-air and its launch was up +53% vs slot average.

    Comments Off on Seniors Become Tech in Spain with Onliners and Old Timers

    Gestmusic, a Banijay Iberia company, confirms it will produce Onliners and Old Timers (Canvi de Xip) in collaboration with Catalan Ministry of Culture for TV3. The new social experiment pairs tech-savvy millennials with older technophobes, as they attempt to enter the twenty-first century.

     

    In a short time, the pensioners will be introduced to the wonders of the worldwide web. For those that have fallen behind, the digital world can be very overwhelming, which is where charismatic shrewd millennials come in. They put their student through their paces as they master creating viral videos, reconnecting with family via videoconferencing and online shopping.

     

    This show was originally produced by Banijay UK’s Princess Productions and has been adapted by Endemol Shine Finland for Yle TV 1.

     

    Lucas Green, Global Head of Operations Comments: Onliners and Old Timers explores how different generations can learn from each other in an uplifting, engaging and humorous format. At a time when we are relying on technology and human connection more than ever, this experiment goes beyond a television show, as each generation will walk away with a new skill-set.”

     

    Tinet Rubira, Managing Director of Gestmusic says: “To millennials, the internet is a part of their daily routine as much as brushing their teeth, but it is not always a simple task to show the older generation how easy it can be to use technology. Funny, touching and revealing, this format sees cross-generational cooperation at its best.”

     

    Gestmusic has brought hit-shows to Spain for over three decades (Boom!, Ahora Caigo), and has created successful international hits such as Your Face sounds familiar, Operación Triunfo, and the recent success Top Gamers Academy, the world’s first gaming talent show with a strong digital presence via Twitch and Youtube.
