New social experiment series from South Korea explores contrasting political systems of democracies and authoritarian rule marking it as the first original co-development format jointly created by Endemol Shine Group and CJ E&M.

CJ E&M Endemol Shine Group MIPCOM The Society Game

Global content creator, producer and distributor Endemol Shine Group and Asia’s leading content and media company CJ E&M announced the first original co-development format following their international partnership. The Society Game is a new reality format that explores different political systems, communities and their leadership. Two contrasting ‘societies’ based on authoritarian rule and democracy models must win physical and mental challenges or risk destabilising their community.


The format marks the first co-production between Endemol Shine Group and CJ E&M following their international partnership. Developed with Endemol Shine Asia, the first series will premiere on primetime in South Korea on TvN, CJ E&M’s flagship channel next month.  The Society Game will make its international debut at MIPCOM 2016 in Cannes, where it will be among Endemol Shine Group’s headline formats. The international partnership between Endemol Shine Group and CJ E&M was announced earlier this year and will see the two companies jointly create, produce and distribute original formats and series for the worldwide marketplace.
