Keshet gameshow format Boom!

MIPTV: Discovery Group’s channel Nove has ordered an Italian version of Keshet International’s gameshow format Boom!.

The show will be produced by Endemol Shine Italy and is slated to air in primetime in autumn 2016.

Laura Carafoli, senior VP of programming and content at Discovery Italy, said: “Boom! is a great opportunity for us and for the new soul of channel Nove.

“With this format, and thanks to our partners Keshet International and Endemol Shine, we want to bring Discovery’s DNA and creativity into Italian general entertainment TV.”

wild_thingsBoom!, which was ordered by Caracol in Colombia recently, was created by Keshet, Ido Rozenblum and Red Arrow-owned Israeli company July August Productions. The format sees contestants completing intellectual and physical challenges against a clock displayed on a ‘bomb’ in the middle of the studio.

US network Fox has also previously taken the gameshow, which began airing on Bayon TV in Cambodia recently. A version for America TV in Peru is in the pipeline, while Argentina’s Telefe licensed an adaptation last year.
