Fresh from Japan, 9 windows is a unique comedy gameshow-meets-talent contest that celebrates ordinary people with extraordinary skills. Set in an iconic, interactive studio setting, each episode features nine contestants, beamed in live initially from their homes via ‘nine windows’ in the form of giant, on-set screens with the option of in-studio finale.

Every episode is centred around a theme that connects each of the nine competitors - whether it’s a shared interest or special skill set. Across three compelling and hilarious rounds, the contestants reveal their extraordinary hidden skillsets and talent – anything from intricate body camouflaging or building famous landmarks from jelly, to blowing out candles with a power-punch.

From the very beginning, the contestants must amaze a studio jury, accumulating as many “likes” as possible to make it through to the next round and with the chance to win a cash prize at the end of each show. Throughout the series, a famous comedy host & celebrity panel keep the laughs coming and action running, in this highly original show.
