MUMBAI: Endemol, the world’s largest independent production company, today unveiled its line-up of brand new formats making their international debut at MIPTV 2014.

Among the headline formats for this year’s slate is Fundastic, a live multiplatform series created by Endemol Israel and developed with leading broadcaster Reshet. This innovative format integrates real-time active viewing through a dedicated crowd funding app. 

Fundastic is a nail biting show where budding entrepreneurs not only face a panel of tough judges but must win over viewers who decide, via the bespoke app, how much financial backing from the prize fund each contender deserves. The final winning entrepreneur receives funding as well as expert mentoring and guidance to help make their business vision a reality. 

Ejector Seat is a funny, fast paced general knowledge game show from Endemol UK for ITV. When loosing contestants exit the show they are literally tipped backwards from their seats in a spectacular fashion. The game is simple: if contestants answer questions correctly they stay sitting happily in their seat. But give the wrong response and their seat travels backwards along the track. The contestant is now under pressure – and, as they move further towards the back, even the simplest questions suddenly feels incredibly tough. 

Host in the Box is an original factual entertainment series from Endemol Germany for Prosieben. The presenter is locked in a wooden box and shipped off to an undisclosed location equipped with nothing but burning curiosity and the box they arrive in. From rough riding Hell’s Angels to the sober Amish and wild porn actors, the host must adapt to a completely different lifestyles than what they are used to. 

Endemol Spain has created Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids & Co an entertaining new twist on the global celebrity talent show which has successfully launched in Portugal. This format brings together an all-star cast from previous Your Face Sounds Familiar series to mentor talented kids. Eight youngsters are teamed up with eight of the best celebrities to perform in duos, impersonating iconic musical performers of all times. As always, the Your Face Sounds Familiar buzzer will determine which modern or iconic musical performance each contestant will become the following week, guaranteeing hilarious and dramatic results. 

Iris Boelhouwer, Endemol’s MD of Creative Operations says; “This year we have an extremely strong line-up of entirely new formats all set to make their international debut in Cannes. These groundbreaking shows originate from some of the world’s most creative markets and are a great mix of entertainment, games shows and multiplatform innovation.” 

At MIPTV 2014 Endemol will exhibit in the Riviera Hall (R8.E15)
