Fremantle and Kansai TV have launched the new entertainment format "Quiz Pong" following a co-development deal initially revealed at MIPCOM 2022. Kansai TV saw a successful launch for "Quiz Pong" in Japan last month. Fremantle will handle the production and global distribution of the format, building on Fremantle’s successful track record selling and producing Fuji Group shows from Japan around the world including "Hole In The Wall", "The Noise" and "Total Blackout", amounting to 94 adaptations across 49 territories.
Vasha Wallace, EVP Global Acquisitions and Development at Fremantle said: “After enjoying a strong performance on Kansai TV, the 'Quiz Pong' format is ready to go global. This is an exciting deal for Fremantle. We have really enjoyed collaborating with Kansai TV’s talented production team on this addictive new gameshow. 'Quiz Pong' is all about agility, brain power and having fun on a really iconic set that is bound to keep family viewers entertained and wanting to play 'Quiz Pong' themselves. We look forward to bringing the exhilarating gameshow to a global audience.”
"Quiz Pong" is a fast-paced gameshow where teams compete against each other in a fun tournament testing their mental, physical, and strategy skills. The teams go head-to-head by throwing balls into moving baskets, on an iconic supersized set and answering general knowledge questions to score points.
Miho Okada, Executive Managing Director at Kansai TV said “We’re delighted to launch 'Quiz Pong' to the global market. Thanks to the innovative idea from our producers and creative support from Fremantle, 'Quiz Pong' developed into a fun, exciting, and relatable format to an audience of all generations. We’re very happy with the Japanese episodes that we broadcast on our channel, and hope this format will travel to many countries and become another internationally successful game show format from Japan.”
