• Hit primetime entertainment formats optioned for adaptations in the UK, France, Spain, the Netherlands and Israel

LONDON. 16 May, 2022: Red Arrow Studios International has scored a new wave of international deals for Stealing the Show! and Beat the Channel, the top rating entertainment formats originally produced by Florida Entertainment for ProSieben (Germany).

Stealing the Show! has been sold to Tin Can in the Netherlands and Bandicoot in the UK, while Beat the Channel has been optioned by Boxfish in Spain, ITV France in France and July August Productions in Israel.

Tim Gerhartz, President & Managing Director at Red Arrow Studios International, said: “Stealing the Show! and Beat the Channel have really taken the primetime entertainment genre to the next level. They are truly original concepts that have become cultural phenomena in their domestic territory, delivering outstanding ratings and audience engagement. We are really looking forward to seeing these new local partners put their own spin on this unique pair of titles.”

Stealing the Show! (local title: Wer stiehlt mir die Show?) offers three celebrity contestants and a member of the public the chance to literally steal the show and take control of the next episode as quiz master. The original version has built its audience season upon season for ProSieben and the third instalment, which finished its run earlier this year, became the best performing season to date, capturing a market share of 20.6% (14-49-year-olds) and growing its audience across all demographics. Season four has been commissioned.

Beat the Channel (local title: Joko & Klaas gegen ProSieben) is a high-energy and totally original primetime entertainment format which sees two popular TV presenters given the chance to win a 15-minute live broadcast slot, where anything goes! The show’s fifth season in Germany premiered in April with a 16.3% market share among 14-49-year-olds.

Red Arrow Studios International distributes both formats internationally.
