  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.

    Comments Off on RTVE and Dlo/Magnolia Produce Ruralitas, an Insight into Life in Rural Spain

    RTVE and Dlo/Magnolia, a Banijay Group company, confirm the launch of a new series for La 2. Ruralitas will hear from those that have chosen to live in the most remote areas of the country.

     

    Ruralitas tours Spain connecting the inhabitants of the sparsely-populated areas with the rest of the country. Locals offer first-hand accounts of living in rural communities and their motivations for doing so; from a cheesemaker in La Rioja, agents from the Alicante Civil Guard, to the mayor of a small town in Almería.

     

    In the first episode, Ruralitas travels to the mountainous inland area of Lugo and the remote village of Pena da Nogueira. This village has only six inhabitants, one of which is Alberto. He shares how he returned to Pena da Nogueira to install his ancestors’ hives and make his passion for bees a way of life.

     

    The episode will also accompany a couple of travelling veterinarians, Verónica and Benito, who, on board their mobile surgical unit, attend to the animals of those living in San Millán de Juarros, southeast of the province of Burgos.

     

    Ruralitas is an original RTVE production in collaboration with Dlo/Magnolia.

  4. La Caza. Tramuntana Triggers Filming on New Case that Moves Sergeant Campos to Mallorca

    Comments Off on La Caza. Tramuntana Triggers Filming on New Case that Moves Sergeant Campos to Mallorca

    Dlo/Magnolia, a Banijay Group Company, confirms filming has begun in the Mallorcan mountains for La Caza. Tramuntana. Produced by RTVE in collaboration with Dlo/Magnolia, the thriller follows the success of La Caza. Monteperdido, with Sergeant Campos returning to take on a new case.

    Set in Tramuntana, a small fictional town in the ‘Sierra de Mallorca’, the story begins at a local festival. As fire-runners, demons and ‘caparrots’ overtake the neighbourhood, three teenagers witness Bernat, one of the most beloved people in the village, killed. From that moment on, nothing will ever be the same for the locals.

    Swooping in to investigate the murder are Sergeant Sara Campos (Megan Montaner) and her new partner, Corporal Ernesto Suecia (Félix Gómez). As the investigation evolves, it becomes comparable to a Russian doll: within every mystery, there is another twist.

    What secret hides beneath the beautiful landscape of Tramuntana? The answer will not only expose the secrets the locals are hiding, but it will also bring to light Sara Campos’ past, which she will have to face to solve this new case. However, she won’t do it alone; Sara will have the opportunity to meet Corporal Victor Gamero (Alain Hernández) to, perhaps, close the open wounds from Monteperdido.

    Filming will mostly take place in Valldemossa, Mallorca. Outside of the fictional “Tramuntana”, filming will take place across the island: Port of Soller, the Faro de Soller, Cala Tuent, Port des Canonge, the Mirador de s’Entreforc and Cala Pi. Local actors and technicians will join the team at Dlo/Magnolia.

    This season will be directed by David Ulloa and Rafael Montesinos, with screenwriters Agustín Martínez (creator), Miguel Sáez Carral, Jorge Díaz and Antonio Mercero. José Manuel Lorenzo and Reyes Baltanás will executive produce for Dlo/Magnolia.

    In May it was announced that La Caza. Monteperdido was one of La 1’s most-viewed shows, averaging a 14% share and a 2,162,000 audience. It remained Monday’s most-watched primetime series since its premiere. In addition to its live performance, it was a leader in the consolidated roundup, with 423,000 average viewers recording each episode to watch later.

    In terms of digital performance, it was the most popular series of RTVE in May, with more than 900,000 users. With visits increasing episode-on-episode, its social media engagements also saw a steady rise, amassing thousands of positive comments and a regular spot in the trends.

    The series received the audience award at the last Luchon Television Festival and scooped the FesTVal de Vitoria at the 2019 FesTVal Awards. La Caza. Monteperdido was also nominated for Best Television Fiction at the Prix Europa Awards, four Iris Awards and was a finalist at the Venice TV Awards 2019, amongst others.

    The format rights for La Caza. Monteperdido sit with Banijay Group and RTVE.
