Banijay announced “Domino Effect” will be adapted for the French market, with EndemolShine France producing for M6. The commission follows the recent pickup of the EndemolShine North America format in Holland, where it will be produced by EndemolShine Netherlands for RTL4.
“Domino Effect” is a brand-new competition in which pairs of domino builders compete to create extraordinary structures. To avoid elimination, they must continue to surpass themselves week on week and impress the expert judges. The show is based on the original format from Endemol Shine North America, which sees a collaboration with YouTube domino sensation, Lily Hevesh.
The commission follows the successful adaptation of “LEGO Masters” by EndemolShine France in the territory. It’s also behind “Undercover Boss” (M6), “Best Bakery” (M6), “One Born Every Minute” (TF1), “Miss France” (TF1), and “LOL: Last One Laughing” (Amazon Prime Video).
James Townley, Global Head of Content Development at Banijay, commented: “Packed with awe-inspiring creations and nail-biting jeopardy, as one movement could see contestants lose all their hard work, this entertaining format for the whole family is quickly gaining momentum on the international stage. Banijay has a proven track record in delivering high-quality competition reality formats that quickly travel the world and we are definitely seeing a ‘Domino Effect’ with this one”.
Jean-Louis Blot, CEO of EndemolShine Production, added: “Amazing designs, limitless creativity and ambition are all the right ingredients to offer an impressive show to viewers. We are looking forward to bringing this format to France and witnessing the audiences’ reaction as the talented contestants design, build and ultimately topple these mind-blowing builds”.
