· Clockwise: Sold to Spain and France
· The Wedding I Did (n’t) Have: Sold to Australia and Italy
Munich, March 11, 2009. Two formats by SevenOne International, the ProSiebenSat.1 Group’s worldwide programming sales company, have been nominated for a Rose D’Or, the prestigious international award for best entertainment TV programs. “Clockwise”(produced by Kuperman Productions/Keshet Formats) has been selected in the game show category whilst in the reality category “The Wedding I Did (n’t) Have” (produced by Jokfoe) has been nominated. This year, programs from 33 countries are competing for one of the most important international TV awards. The winners will be announced during the Rose d’Or Festival on May 5.
Jens Richter, Managing Director of SevenOne International: “We are very excited to have two formats nominated at this year’s Rose D’Or. “Clockwise” and “The Wedding I Did (n’t) Have” have not only been incredibly successful in their country of production but have already been sold to key territories such as Spain, France and Italy. Being considered by this acclaimed festival is an acknowledgement of the international potential of our shows.”
Fast-paced and highly entertaining, “Clockwise” is a studio-based games show in which contestants attempt to beat the ultimate rival – the clock. Since every second is worth money, the contestants have to give as many answers as possible to the host’s questions. Those who survive the first five rounds will face one final question for all the cash accumulated in the account. “Clockwise” is produced by Kuperman Productions in association with Keshet Formats. The game show debuted on Israel’s leading Channel 2 in 2008.
The Wedding I Did(n’t) Have
What if the most important day of your life turned out to be a complete disaster? The real-life series “The Wedding I Did (n’t) Have” allows those who have messed up their first wedding a second chance. Whereas one spouse believes to be part of a documentary about weddings that went terribly wrong, the other is organizing a new wedding day, under one condition: The event must be kept entirely secret from their partners. Produced by Jokfoe for Belgian TV broadcaster VIJFtv, the show first aired on VIJFtv in early 2008, when it outperformed the channel’s average share by up to 200 percent.
