FremantleMedia brings ratings winners to MIPCOM 2015

MUMBAI: An exciting line up of bold and energetic titles are on their way to this year’s MIPCOM, set to grab the attention of worldwide TV buyers. 


FremantleMedia director of global entertainment Rob Clark said, “I love how brilliantly diverse our formats feel this MIPCOM. Every show is a proven ratings success and has been tried and tested in some of our toughest markets. From enticing new titles set to shake up schedules to reinvigorated classics with a modern twist, I’m confident we can cater to audiences across the globe.” 

First from the slate is La Banda, a dramatically different new music reality competition where, for the first time ever, the fans are in control. Developed by SYCO Entertainment, Saban Brands and Univision Network, La Banda’s recent launch in the US placed Univision as the No. 4 broadcast TV network - 74 per cent above Univision’s regular Sunday audience average. 


Then, prepare to strap on those safety goggles for The Eureka Moment - an explosive new game show by Blue Circle that that supersizes classroom chemistry into classic prime time entertainment. The series launch on RTL4 positioned the show #1 in its timeslot and above all the #1 entertainment launch in the Netherlands in 2015. In each episode, two couples go head to head as they test their popular science knowledge and come face to face with a raft of dangerous stunts and wacky experiments, all in the bid to win a luxury holiday. 


Next it’s time to play some virtual quiz tennis with fast paced game show format Rebound produced by Thames. Taking inspiration from a retro video game Rebound challenges wit, knowledge and composure as two contender’s battle it out before the iconic visual ‘Moving Bar’ creeps across the studio and eliminates them from the game. Players must respond swiftly and correctly before the bar reaches them in order to divert the Bar back towards their opponent. With large cash jackpot at stake the contestants need to think fast and beat the bar.


Think you know quiz shows? Think again! Who Knew? is a brand new addition to the game show genre by UFA Show and Factual that works both stripped across the week or in a prime time slot. The celebrity panel series launched on Germany’s ARD and was #1 in its timeslot as well as landing the highest rated Saturday night game show launch in eight years. Who Knew? provides a daily dose of nutty knowledge by featuring an array of very unusual questions that unveil some crazy facts from everyday life, scientific studies, or even practical hints and tips. 


Additionally, two much loved classic formats have been given a fresh injection of fun for today’s audience.Celebrity Family Feud is the USA’s highest rated new entertainment launch of the 2014/15 season and sees celebrity families compete against each other in the star-studded version of iconic game show Family FeudTo Tell The Truth is the beloved 1960’s classic hit gameshow, which has been rebooted and returns to our screens. Anarchic and funny, this format features a celebrity panel who need to guess who is telling the truth between three people all claiming to be the same person with the same incredible talent, job or achievement.


To round off the new line-up, FremantleMedia presents Lords and Ladles - an entertaining lifestyle format by Mind the Gap Films that invites viewers on a historical journey celebrating the past through the wonders of food and the glories of cooking. The show is fronted by three intrepid chefs who will recreate grand feasts based on original recipe books from centuries ago. The audience is given a unique opportunity to peep behind closed doors delving into the histories of some of the grandest private homes to witness the everyday lives of the families who lived there.
