Which Norwegian Comedian Will Identify the Fibbers in Banijay’s Are You For Real?Comments Off on Which Norwegian Comedian Will Identify the Fibbers in Banijay’s Are You For Real?
Media and entertainment powerhouse, Banijay today announces that Are You For Real? (Skinnet Bedrar?) is heading to Norway. Nordisk Banijay will produce 12 episodes of this gameshow for TV Norge. This format was developed by Endemol Shine Boomdog, Endemol Shine Italy and TelevisaUnivision.
Norwegian presenter and journalist Ronny Brede Aase will host the show where a rotating panel of comedians try to identify the liars from the rest. In this unpredictable gameshow, three people take to the stage with a supposed talent, job, or characteristic. However, only one of them is being honest. The famous comedians must rely on their intuition, tasks, and questions to figure out who are the masters of deception. The stakes are high as an audience member sitting in the winning comedians section then has the chance to walk away with a great prize.
Adapted in four territories including Mexico where Are You For Real? was the number one non-scripted show across all key demos and has recently finished its second series on Canal 5. Last year it also launched in Peru and Sweden where it consistently won the slot for the 20-49 demographic.
Erlend Hernø Røeggen, CEO Nordisk Banijay says: “Whether you’re on the celebrity panel, in the audience, or watching at home, everyone can play along and see how well they can read people… With a line-up of comedians ready to get stuck in the audience can expect a high-energy show and hilarious probing.”
Lucas Green, Chief Content Officer, Operations at Banijay says: “Audiences are looking for those upbeat, joyful shows, and this format meets this demand while adding a gamified twist on the talent show genre. Developed by EndemolShine Boomdog, Endemol Shine Italy and Televisa, Are You For Real? showcases the strength of collaboration and it’s great to see it build on its success in Mexico, Sweden, and Peru with this new Norwegian 12 episode commission.”
With Are You For Real?, Nordisk Banijay continues to build on its impressive slate which includes hit shows such as 71 Degrees North now on its 15th series, All Against 1, Born Winners and Portrait Artist of the Year Norway to name a few.
