World Brief

FremantleMedia has sold its hit format “Poker Face” to RCN in Colombia, making it the 12th country to get into the game. “Poker Face” debuted on England’s ITV1 in July when it went on to surpass other gameshows such as “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” and “Celebrity Love Island.”  It also airs in Australia, Slovakia, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia and Sweden. FremantleMedia is in talks with other Latin American territories.

Colombia’s got a highly competitive TV market, and its viewers have watched all the popular gameshows such as “Big Brother,” “Deal or No Deal” and “Survivor.” “Factor X” and its spinoffs finally pushed RCN to dominate the primetime ratings in Colombia.
