Global Agency, an international independent TV content distributor, will introduce many hit original formats at MIPCOM 2014. Presenting 15 new formats at the market is a record for Global Agency and the company is reporting its most successful year ever.
One of the leading lights for the market is Stand By Me – a new duet project created by Global Agency – where the celebrity jury members are also contestants. In this 18-week singing competition, each juror must choose their own team of 10 to compete in battle rounds, but there’s a catch: the juror also has to sing with them in a high-energy duet.
Next is an original and fun-filled game show format, TUG, created by Michael Rotschild and produced by July August Productions with the TV Format Fund. In an exciting twist on the game of tug-of-war, two teams with three members each go head to head in a war of knowledge. The teams’ goal is to reach the final round with as much money as possible, with victory reached by pulling their opponents into the “zero-line” in the middle of the money rail. The team with the most money at the end of three battle rounds will compete in the final round, but they’ll have to be both fast and smart to take home all of the money they’ve banked.
Love is also on the agenda in live dating show Love Is Calling, a show that brings people together from all ages, lifestyles and backgrounds. They have the same goal of finding the perfect companion. It aired on RTL in Germany in 2014, and since its debut in Turkey, 120,000 people have sought to appear on Love is Calling, hoping to find their perfect mate and so far 340 couples have found their match on the show.
