STARLING DEVELOPS NEW GAMESHOW FOR FRANCE TELEVISIONS
AVEC OU SANS JOKER TO LAUNCH ON FR2
Paris, 20 June 2013 -- Sony Pictures Television’s (SPT’s) two French production ventures, SPT Productions France and Starling, are to co produce a brand new gameshow for France Télévisions called Avec ou Sans Joker. The show was created by Starling and the deal will see the series premiere on FR2, running for an initial 36 episodes in access prime time.
Avec ou Sans Joker pits contestants against each other using general knowledge questions, accompanied by a multitude of holograms that provide clues in the form of challenges and riddles. These holograms materialise in a variety of forms, either as objects or people, and each offers a clue in line with their own characteristics or personality.
Nathalie Civrais, senior vice president, SPT Productions France said: “Through its floating apparitions, Avec ou Sans Joker brings a new dimension to the game play and a host of characters to appear on-air and through ancillary extensions.”
Avec ou Sans Joker is set to launch on FR2 in July. Other French productions from SPT Productions France and Starling include Qui Veut Gagner des Millions (Who Wants to be a Millionaire?) for TF1, Les Z’Amours (The Newlywed Game) for France2, Le Grand Concours (Brainiest) for TF1, and Qui veut épouser mon fils (Who Wants to Marry My Son?) for TF1.
