“Funny Farm” is on its way to Germany! The new entertainment show, a co-production between The Gurin Company and Redseven Entertainment, will be airing on German TV channel ProSieben. The show is distributed worldwide by SevenOne International. In the U.S., Canada and the UK, the show is sold by The Gurin Company.
“Funny Farm” (produced by The Gurin Company and Redseven Entertainment) is an outrageous, fast-paced elimination competition that takes ten city slickers and drops them in the middle of a series of crazy farm-inspired challenges. Leaving their slick urban life behind, the competitors will have to endure an obstacle course with a row of farm-inspired action challenges – from shearing sheep and milking cows to rescuing roosters from the dung heap. After each round, the candidate with the worst performance has to leave the farm. In the end, only one contestant will prove to be the king of the countryside and win the cash – and the glory.
Jens Richter, Managing Director SevenOne International: ”Working with The Gurin Company and Redseven Entertainment is proving to be a creative and fruitful cooperation. With ‘Funny Farm’, we have joined forces and developed a true entertainment highlight with international appeal – the first of many new shows which are developed within the Red Arrow Entertainment Group.”
Jobst Benthues, Managing Director Redseven Entertainment: ”The collaboration between The Gurin Company and Redseven Entertainment arose in the context of our transatlantic development pipeline. ‘Funny Farm’ is a new, spectacular and entertaining action format which is perfectly in line with current format trends.”
Phil Gurin, President The Gurin Company: “We are very excited about our creative collaboration with ProSieben and Redseven. Funny Farm is a terrific new format that should work for territories all over the world, and the production model will make it attractive for broadcasters and producers everywhere to join us for this large scale comedy reality competition. Most important of all, it is only the first of many new formats we have developed together, all designed for the international television market.“
