CBS Studios Intl. Boards Airplane-Set Game Show ‘Game Plane’

LONDON — CBS Studios Intl. has inked an exclusive deal with production company Alpine Labs to license the format rights to “The Game Plane,” the first game show to be filmed entirely on real, regularly scheduled airline flights.

The deal covers territories outside of the U.S. and Canada.

The show’s first season debuted in U.S. syndication September 2014 and has been picked up for a second season, launching in September of this year.

In each episode, unsuspecting passengers board the show’s plane en route to their destination. All passengers receive a playing card when they’re on board. If their card is called, the passenger is invited to play one of many games that have been created for the show and adapted to be played on a commercial airplane. Contestants can win cash and prizes such as hotel suites, five-star dining experiences and luxury vacations.

“The Game Plane” was created by Kevin Abrams, developed by Jeff Mirkin and is distributed in the U.S. and Canada by Trifecta Entertainment and Media.

“‘The Game Plane’ is a terrific show with a unique twist, making it the perfect format for broadcasters looking to give audiences an exclusive game-show experience,” said Paul Gilbert, senior VP, international formats, CBS Studios Intl.
