Shine Takes French Format 'Anything Goes' to Spain, Brazil
The late-night format, a hit on France's TF1, features comedians and actors carrying out silly challenges.
Shine Group has inked a series of new deals for hit French late-night comedy format Anything Goes, with local language versions set for Spain, Brazil, Ukraine and Romania.
The original show, in which comedians and actors challenge each other to a series of silly and outrageous stunts, is a ratings smash on French network TF1.
Shine, which launched the format at the international television market MIPCOM in Cannes last year, has licensed the show to 11 territories so far.
Portugal's SIC has already renewed a local version of Anything Goes after the first series run in January doubled the channel's slot average. Australia's Seven network bowed the format under the name SlideShow, a reverence to the show's sliding stage, on August 7, winning the night overall with 2 million viewers. China, Canada, Denmark and Lebanon have also licensed local versions of the show.
The new deals are for Spain's Antena 3, the 1+1 network in Ukraine, Globo in Brazil and Antena 1 in Romania. Shine Iberia produces the format for Portugal and will handle the Spanish version. Globo has commissioned a 20 episode primetime order of Anything Goes that it will produce in-house. Ukraine's 1+1 has commissioned 10 episodes of the show and the deal with Antena 1 in Romania is for 8 episodes.
Paris-based production group Satisfaction created the original format and produces the French version of the show.
