Endemol has announced new commissions at its international production hubs from broadcasters in China.
Shanghai Media Group’s Entertainment Channel has ordered a first series of Endemol Argentina’s obstacle-based game show XXS. The ten-part series will broadcast in peak time and will be in production over the next two months. XXS features families competing for a cash prize by taking on a larger-than-life obstacle course set in a giant house.
Zhejiang Satellite TV has commissioned two twelve-episode seasons of Endemol’s stunt-based format 101 Ways to Leave a Game Show. The first series launched on the channel in prime time earlier in the year and the second season will broadcast later in 2012.
Both programmes are being produced by Endemol at the company’s international production hubs outside Buenos Aires, with contestants from China being flown in to compete. Endemol Argentina is handling production in association with Endemol Asia and the broadcasters of each series.
