CANNES — Prolific French candid camera producer Novavision has inked a multi-year deal with KWHY-TV, the second Los Angeles channel of NBC-U’s Spanish-language web Telemundo.
Deal will see KWHY-TV broadcast Candid Camera Popcorn TV clips — non-dialogue gags, which Novavision packages at anything from five-to-seven minutes compilations to half hours, plus Christmas specials.
The Paris-based production house now produces 1,100 gags per year and three-to-four new half-hour shows a week.
Created in 2002, Novavision’s ZeZe Candid Camera sketches — featuring pranks by French comic ZeZe — have sold to French pubcaster France 3, Italy’s Mediaset and Fox Channels Italy, among channels, as well as mobile TV operators such as Orange and Vodafone in the U.K.
At Mip TV, Novavision will launch the first 50 sketches from Juniors Candid Camera, which are one-to-three minute non-dialogue gags performed by 8-13s, as well as Pop Corn TV Junior, half-hour compilations of the best Juniors Candid Camera sketches.
