Talpa recently celebrated a successful debut of its "Murmel Mania" series, which recently aired on RTL Germany. The second season of the series, produced by Talpa Entertainment Productions and distributed by Talpa Distribution, kicked-off with good ratings.

Garnering a market share of 14.8% in the 14-49 key demo and over 2.5 million viewers, the German version of Talpa’s hit show Marble Mania outperformed the channel average and proves to be an international success. After France, a first season of the show will launch in Belgium on VTM soon and in the Netherlands the second season is currently on air, scoring an average market share of 20%.  Let the marbles run.

On each episode of this marble racing show, three celebrities take each other using their own color marbles. Each round starts with a skill assignment, where they can influence each other's success and where the three celebrities need to prove their skills. The better they play, the more marbles they get at the start of the second game of the round: the game of luck. The celebrity whose marble crosses the finish line first, earns the most points. After three rounds, whoever’s at the top of the ranking will get the most marbles to start in the finale, in which there is money to be won for a charity of their choice. With an impressive six-meter-high marble run, the finale is the most exciting and nerve-wracking round of them all.
