NBC launching new gameshow in December strip

'Who's Still Standing?' an adaptation of Israeli format

NBC will launch primetime gameshow “Who’s Still Standing?” in a four-night strip the week of Dec. 19, before airing it Mondays through the end of January.

The strategy is similar to how “Deal or No Deal” bowed on NBC in December 2005. “Who’s Still Standing?” would air as a companion to “Fear Factor” on Mondays.

Ben Bailey (“Cash Cab”) will host “Standing,” an adaptation of a year-old Israeli format in which contestants compete head-to-head in trivia challenges, with losers dropped from the stage through a trap door. The survivor can win up to $1 million.

“The compelling and fresh format features the best elements of a classic trivia match combined with physical comedy, providing an intense competition that can be enjoyed by all ages,” said NBC alternative and latenight programming topper Paul Telegdy.

In addition to being renewed for a third season in Israel, the format also airs in Spain (Antena3) and Hungary (M1), where it has also been spun off into daily syndicated series, and is in development in 10 other territories including France and Germany. In Spain and Hungary, the format was spun off into a daily syndicated series.

Craig Plestis and Tim Puntillo (“Minute to Win It”) are exec producing “Standing” for Universal TV in association with Armoza Formats. Paradigm handled the sale to NBC with Armoza.
