CANNES — French companies Newen and Big Nose have teamed up to develop “Harry,” a word game mixing strategy and chance.
“Harry” breaks down words in sequences and requires five players to put them in order and find their meanings as quickly as possible. The faster players are, the more money they can earn.
Newen head of development Alexandra Crucq said the company was in discussions with French, German, British, American and Canadian broadcasters interested in the format.
Earlier this year, Larue launched the Newen Network, a group of Euro TV producers, including Spanish TV producer Globomedia, who get first-look options to acquire each other’s formats.
