Global Agency’s latest quiz show format Joker has been piloted by France 2.
After its launch at MIPCOM, Joker has been one of the most talked
about formats from Global Agency. It is now one of the most popular
projects in the company’s catalogue. Joker recently started airing on
TRT, Turkey’s national public broadcaster and raised the channel’s
ratings by 300%.
Following the sale to producer Herve Hubert, who is famous for
French quiz shows, Joker was quickly piloted by France 2. The pilot was
at TRT Studios, Istanbul and it was filmed with great success. The
production team shot the pilots with three different famous hosts and
three different contestants from France.
Negotiations for Joker continue in several countries including Italy and Spain.
“Joker” is a fast –paced, dynamic and exciting quiz sho, where
it’s easy to make the money, but much harder to keep it! Each contestant
has to answer 15 multiple choice questions and there are no
eliminations for wrong answers. The contestants start with 10 Joker
wildcards, which they can use to eliminate a wrong answer if they don’t
know the correct answer. For every right answer, the contestant moves
higher up the money tree, but for every wrong answer, contestants move
four levels down and lose thousands of their prize money. At the end of
the 15th question, the contestant wins the prize equivalent to their
position on the money tree.
