Following its success and recommission in the Netherlands and major broadcast commissions in France, Spain and Romania, Talpa’s quiz show “The Floor” has now made its way to Germany. The quiz show has been commissioned by Seven.One Entertainment Group for SAT.1, and will be produced by Cheerio Entertainment at the local hub in the Netherlands.
After “A Quiz for You,” “The Floor” is the second project deriving from the partnership between Talpa and Seven.One Entertainment Group. Six weekly primetime episodes of “The Floor” are set to air on SAT.1 in 2024. “With ‘The Floor,’ SAT.1 has secured the rights to a very special worldwide quiz format. The combination of quiz duel and strategic thinking for the players is unique,” said Hannes Hiller, SVP Content Development at ProSiebenSat.1.
“Since its launch on RTL4 in the Netherlands in 2022, Germany is already the fifth country where this intriguing quiz show is about to reach a brand new audience. ‘The Floor’s’ success proves that this instantly engaging, arced gameshow is built for this day and age,” Talpa’s owner John de Mol commented.
With its unique format, the quiz show combines knowledge, strategy and quick thinking. “The Floor's” first season in the Netherlands scored impressive ratings on RTL4, with an average market share of 21% in the key demo 25-54.
