Cartoon digs a ‘Hole’

Net orders new version of Human Tetris-like gamer

Cartoon Network has uncovered the “Hole in the Wall,” ordering a new version of the Human Tetris-like gamer.

“Hole,” which orginally ran on Fox during the 2008-2009 TV season, has now been updated for Cartoon Network’s younger-skewing audience. Cartoon has picked up 10 new episodes of the show.

In the new version, the half-hour game show will pit two teams of families against each other. But the gist of the show is the same: Contestants, dressed in spandex, contort their bodies in order to clear a series of moving barriers with various cut-out shapes.

The “Hole in the Wall” acquisition comes as Cartoon Network has gotten busy in the live-action reality TV and game show space, with shows like “Dude What Would Happen” and “Destroy Build Destroy.”

“Hole in the Wall” is based on a popular Japanese TV format from Fuji TV. Since “Hole in the Wall’s” 2006 premiere on Fuji TV, the format has made it to localized editions from FremantleMedia in territories including Argentina, Australia, Brazil, China, Colombia, Denmark, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Mexico, Russia and the U.K.

“Hole” reps the latest gamer to find new life after an initial broadcast run. Other shows making the transition include “The Singing Bee,” which originally aired on NBC but later moved to CMT.
