Disney’s Star Channel premieres Finnish version of Nippon TV’s Silent Library

Gameshow format Silent Library Suomi

Disney-owned Star Channel in Finland is to premiere a local language version of gameshow format Silent Library tonight.

The news was announced by Nippon TV, the Japanese entertainment company that created the show and licenses it around the world. The Finnish version is produced by Finland-based Rabbit Films.

“We have long been fans of this outrageously fun format and are proud to introduce a local version to the Finnish audience,” said Olli Suominen, CEO of Rabbit Films.

Renamed Silent Library Suomi in Finland, the studio show sees six contestants endure crazy pranks being played on them while attempting to stay completely silent.

The original Japanese format was created by comedian Hitoshi Matsumoto and first aired on Nippon TV in 2001.

It has since been developed in more than 20 countries including the US for MTV, Spain, Belgium, France and Vietnam.

“Silent Library Suomi will incorporate some unique Finnish cultural elements such as locations in saunas or Christmas themes into this crazy Japanese gameshow format,” said Moe Kanzaki, sales and licensing, international business development at Nippon TV.
