Monday, April 06, 2015

BBC Worldwide announces new formats to be introduced at MIPTV 2015. There are seven new unscripted formats and one scripted drama available for global buyers.

'You’re Back in The Room'. Comedy gameshow. Five complete strangers take on a series of simple games, but each of the contestants has been hypnotised. The seemingly straightforward tasks get much harder, as their hypnotic triggers cause them to unwittingly sabotage their progress. In a press release, BBC Worldwide said that 'You’re Back in The Room' is its "key title for MIPTV".

'The Edge'. Quiz/gameshow hybrid that requires brains and balls - answering quickfire questions and rolling the ball as close to the edge as possible, to bank the maximum amount of money without dropping out of the game.

'The Big Painting Challenge'. Amateur painters venture to some of the country’s most visually stunning landscapes and locations, where they will face a series of art challenges - from drawing and still life, to landscape and portrait painting. Two expert judges will critique their work and each week.

'Pressure Cooker'. The four contestants are split into two pairs across the first two rounds, each with a celebrity chef to assist them. They have 30 minutes to prepare a meal using only the random ingredients that appear on the unpredictable conveyor belt and basic ingredients available in the kitchen. They must use every ingredient that they take. At the end of the first two rounds the individual efforts of each competing pair are judged by a celebrity food expert and the best cook from each goes through to the final.

'Designs on Chelsea' sees budding garden designers compete to become the first amateur garden designer presenting at the prestigious flower show.

'Seven Envelopes' goes to the streets of one town and turns seven ordinary people into instant contestants who all have a chance to win a cash prize.

'Antique Detectives' join a family member on an emotional journey through their personal history as they investigate the history behind a family treasure to reveal lost secrets.

'Silk'. Drama that follows the rivalry, passion and intrigue of life on the front line of criminal law.

International content market MIPTV (April 13-16, 2015) takes place at Palais des Festivals, Esplanade Georges Pompidou, Cannes, France. Find more about the market here.
