Shine France Picks Up Formats From Keshet And Red Arrow

Shine France Picks Up Formats From

PARIS– In the run-up to Mipcom, Shine France has picked up a pair of formats from Keshet International and Red Arrow International for the Gallic market.

Shine France acquired “Help! I Can’t Cook!” (pictured above) from Keshet International. The show recently bowed on Keshet Broadcasting and proved to be the second highest-rated launch for a reality show ever in Israel (after “Rising Star”). It pulled this year’s ratings record with a 46.2% audience share.

“The culinary competition is definitely a genre that we know very well at Shine France. ‘Help I Can’t Cook!’ fits into the DNA of our programming perfectly: a great quality entertainment show combined with ‘feel-good TV’. We look forward to working on the project” said Thierry Lachkar, CEO of Shine France.

The comedy-filled reality show features 10 celebrities who are self-proclaimed “kitchenophobe” and have to spend three weeks in a closed-doors culinary institute.

Shine France has also secured remake rights to quiz show “Decimate,” which was originally created and produced by Red Arrow Entertainment’s CPL Productions. “Decimate” was recently commissioned by the BBC, with Shane Richie on board to host.

“Decimate” sees a team of three contestants fight to maintain a wall of cash over four rounds. With every wrong answer their total is reduced by 10 percent.

“This new modern game show perfectly matches the values conveyed by Shine France namely a large entertainment innovative, inclusive and family,” says Lachkar.

Henrik Pabst, managing director of global format and factual distribution at Red Arrow Intl., said “‘Decimate’ hits new heights in terms of creativity and originality in the quiz show genre. Partnering with Shine on this fantastic show is the icing on the cake!”
