Banijay Nordic company Pineapple Entertainment is set to produce the first international version of "One Night In…" for TV 2 Zulu. “We can’t wait to get audiences laughing as celebrities run amok and invent off-the-wall games at brilliant Danish department stores tourist spots,” Ole Rahbek, CEO of Pineapple Entertainment says.
Created by Banijay UK label Zeppotron, "One Night In…" proved its appeal upon initially airing on UK broadcaster, Channel 4, becoming the channel’s highest rating new title of 2020. The title more than doubling the slot average for Adults 16 – 34 years old. “With the very best talent on board, both on and off-screen, we are excited to put our own spin on One Night In... Comedy is at the heart of what we do and so this show is the perfect format for us to adapt,” Rahbek said.
The show provides comedians a platform to run wild for one night in a popular, iconic location with no surrounding visitors.Completely unsupervised, the talent can roam free in some of the country’s best-known department stores and theme parks with no security guards or other guardian to deem the status of their safety. The participants must be done with their adventure before the following morning comes around.
Zeppotron’s credits include "8 Out of 10 Cats," "The Ranganation" and "Would I Lie to You?," which was recently commissioned for broadcasters in Australia and the US. Pineapple Entertainment produces a wide array of content across all platforms, including the "Zulu Awards," late-night comedy talk show "Natholdet," "The Nightshift," hosted by Anders Breinholt and long running reality show, "Dimantfamilien," translated into "The Diamond Family."
“We loved creating and producing this charming, escapist and above all, funny format. Our comics were so excited to be let loose for the night in such iconic venues - they were like kids in a sweet shop, and their enthusiasm was infectious,” Ruth Phillips, Joint-Managing Director of Zeppotron comments. “We’re very excited to see the fun that Pineapple Entertainment will now have with the format in Denmark.”
