Keshet International has completed a deal that will see Tuesday’s Child’s compulsive music quiz show “The Hit List” produced locally in the Netherlands. Vincent TV has been commissioned by public service broadcaster NPO to produce 24x60’ episodes of this colourful feel-good format that sees pairs of contestants competing to be the first to guess the name and artist of well-known songs.
Already in production, “De Hit Kwis” will premiere weekdays from July 27 on AVRO/TROS for NPO1. In addition, Vincent TV has also optioned the format in Belgium from Keshet International for the Flemish-speaking market.
“We are so excited to be partnering with Keshet International again, particularly since with ‘The Hit List’ we will be delivering a totally uplifting and fun music entertainment format for the entire family. Just what the doctor ordered for this summer’s viewing. We are extremely proud to be the first country to produce a daily stripped version of the format, proving how versatile ‘The Hit List’ indeed is,” said Vincent ter Voert, CEO of Vincent TV.
Keren Shahar, COO and President of Distribution at Keshet International, commented: “‘The Hit List’ is a fun and entertaining musical treat that gets everyone guessing, both in the studio and at home. Already a hit for BBC One in the UK and for MTV Finland, it is a flexible and quick turnaround shiny-floor format that’s easily adaptable to any time slot, version or budget. I think NPO’s viewers are going to love it”.
Lastly, Karen Smith, CEO of Tuesday's Child, added: “‘The Hit List’ is the perfect feel-good family format for right now - its multi-generational, thoroughly entertaining and irresistibly play along. I defy you not to shout the answers at the screen. It should be easy, you’ve ‘heard’ them all before, but can you name the title and the artist when you’re under pressure?”.
