Crack Them Up coming to Finland

Hit comedy format Crack Them Up is on its way to Finland. Yellow Film & TV (the team behind Nurses and Comedy Combat) have licensed the series and will be delivering 10 episodes for Nelonen to air this March. The original format, from Studio Kvartal 95, is one of Ukraine's favourite entertainment shows, with its 12th season running from September 2016. Hosted by Ukraine’s top comic talent Vladimir Zelensky (Servant Of The People) the series sees amateur stand ups perform for a panel of tough professionals; if they get a laugh out of them they win a cash prize.

Meanwhile, following the huge success of the first two seasons, broadcaster HTV7 has confirmed a third run of the Vietnamese version of the show from producers Dien Quan.

Football format scores in The Netherlands and Finland

u:Supporters is the ultimate football show that brings together fans and professional players in a video game tournament. And now the format is heading to The Netherlands and Finland.

In The Netherlands, Tuvalu will develop a version based on the Dutch Eredivisie football league featuring teams like Ajax and Feyenoord. Taco Zimmerman, creative director at Tuvalu, says, "Young men are historically a hard audience to attract, but u:Supporters taps into the biggest activity for this demographic - playing video games - and the biggest sport on earth - football.”

While in Finland, Yellow Film are developing a local adaptation based on a national ice hockey league. Milla Bruneau, COO Yellow Film & TV Group at Yellow Film, says “Since ice hockey is a bigger sport in Finland than football, we looked at how we could make it relevant for our audiences and ice hockey seems the natural choice.”

Nicola Söderlund, managing partner at Eccho Rights, comments, “The great thing about this format, which is illustrated by the deal in Finland, is that it is easy to adapt for local markets where football might not be the number one sport. I can imagine basketball or American football versions being popular in some territories.”
