Global, Hubert rework Dotto

French TV producer Hervé Hubert has linked up with Turkish distribution outfit Global Agency to revamp a US gameshow dating back 60 years.

Fizzio is based on the US show Dotto, which aired daily on CBS and weekly during primetime on NBC during the 1950s, and is being developed by Hubert, who acquired the international rights for the original US show.

The format requires contestants to answer questions in order to connect the dots, with the first person to guess the resulting image winning a cash prize. An incorrect guess results in elimination.

Hubert has previously launched his own production outfit, which was subsequently acquired by Endemol, and has worked on shows including Let’s Make a Deal, Wheel of Fortune and The Price is Right.

He said Fizzio was “unique and powerful because it has a very strong visual identity, and a very original game play based on the universal game that everybody played, dot-to-dot.”

Global Agency is the exclusive distributor of the format and said it attracted interest at MipTV this month.
