FremantleMedia brings the Gameshow Catalogue to Mipcom

MUMBAI: Following a surge in global interest for its gameshow titles, FremantleMedia will be bringing its Classic GameShow Catalogue to Mipcom this October.

FremantleMedia's extensive gameshow collection includes landmark shows, many of which have recently experienced an impressive revival with audiences worldwide.

Launched on SBT in Brazil in June 2005, the local adaptation of Family Feud has been a huge success gaining daily audiences in excess of three million viewers. Meanwhile, in Australia, Network 9 has recently re-launched Sale of the Century, under the local name of Temptation. Consistently ranking No.1 in its timeslot with daily audiences in excess of one million viewers, Temptation regularly features among the highest rated programmes for Network 9.

Back in the UK, airing as part of Ant and Dec's Gameshow Marathon, The Price is Right gained an audience share of 44 per cent when the show aired on ITV1 in September followed by Take Your Pick with 9 million viewers.

Blockbusters, Card Sharks, Let's Make A Deal, Everybody's Equal, Match Game, Going for Gold, Stop The Clock, Take Your Pick, 100% and To Tell The Truth all feature in FremantleMedia's Classic Gameshow Catalogue.

FremantleMedia Licensing Worldwide will be representing available ancillary rights to these shows including home entertainment, merchandising, licensing, interactive and publishing rights.

Widely regarded as one of the most perfectly constructed gameshows, Family Feud has been newly commissioned in the Netherlands, Belgium, the UK and other European territories. The gameshow format combines interesting questions, great humour, fascinating families and great prizes and has enjoyed success in 38 territories since its US launch in 1976, where it was the No. 1 rated syndicated gameshow from 1978 to 1984.

Family Feud became part of FremantleMedia's catalogue in 1997. Not only a massive ratings hit, it has also been honoured with many awards. Most recently the Mexican version 100 Mexicanos Dijeron, scooped the 'Premio INTE, industria de la TV Espanol' Award for Best Gameshow of the Year.

Making a well deserved and long awaited come back, classic gameshow, Sale of the Century, promises to create a buzz down in Cannes. The Sale of the Century -- now on air in Australia, India and with a special planned for the UK -- is a game for all the family where every contestant can go home a winner. The show is played with three contestants who challenge each other to a battle of wits and accumulate cash over a series of rounds for correctly answering general knowledge questions.

Card Sharks is the perfect gameshow for broadcasters looking for cross promotion opportunities. The aim of the game is for two couples to guess their way across a five card gameboard, predicting if each card is higher or lower than its predecessor. The first one to turn over the last card correctly wins the game and a chance to compete for the jackpot prize.

Let's Make A Deal is 'the big deal'. Having sold to 14 territories and currently on air in India, Let's Make A Deal has proved to be one of the most adaptable formats in the world. It has fabulous pedigree and works for any duration in any timeslot. Whenever it is transmitted, Let's Make A Deal guarantees to take the players and the viewers on a spectacular roller-coaster ride of emotions and excitement from start to finish.

FremantleMedia will also be bringing The Price Is Right - the longest running gameshow in the history of television -- back to Cannes this October. First broadcast on NBC in the US in 1956, this perennial favourite is still on air in Australia, Portugal, Indonesia and the US and has now been broadcast in 26 territories. The successful roll out of this brand worldwide is testament to its enduring popularity, proving it to be a classic and timeless gameshow format.

FremantleMedia senior vice president, production, worldwide entertainment Rob Clark said, "Gameshows are back and the interest in them is worldwide. FremantleMedia offers the world's best: our perennial favourites have broad appeal, mixing traditional fun with modern day interactivity. They are incredibly flexible, working particularly well in primetime or as strips. The scheduling possibilities are endless as is the entertainment these shows provide."
