French producer-distributor Newen Group is launching a new gameshow co-developed with Big Nose Productions and has picked up two formats from Eyeworks and Armoza Formats.
Described as “feel-good TV” family entertainment, Run & Buzz challenges players to run and sit on a buzzing chair before answering sets of questions. Contestants are eliminated if they don’t make it to the chair or give the wrong answers. The last one left wins a cash prize.
Newen will unveil the trailer and stage simulations of the show for buyers during MipTV.
Newen has also acquired French rights to Eyeworks format IQ Test and comic dating show Guys in Disguise from Armoza.
Guys in Disguise is the second format Newen has taked from Armoza, following With This Ring. A pilot of the latter was hosted by model Adriana Karembeu and ran successfully on M6, which commissioned several episodes.
Run & Buzz was co-developed by the same Big Nose and Newen R&D teams that worked on gameshow Harry. Like Harry, it will be pitched simultaneously to the French and international markets.
Harry was first produced for ATV in Turkey before being picked up by France 3, which stripped the show in its late-afternoon strand and renewed it this year.
