Colombia’s Caracol TV to Adapt Hit Game Show ‘Boom!’

Distrib-producer Keshet International has licensed more than 400 episodes of the format worldwide

Top Colombian broadcaster Caracol TV has picked up hit game show format “Boom!” from global TV producer-distributor Keshet International.

Caracol TV will produce inhouse a series of one-hour episodes that air weekly beginning this summer.

According to Keshet International, more than 400 episodes of “Boom!” have been already commissioned worldwide to date. Fox started to broadcast last summer a U.S. adaptation of “Boom!” and, in Cambodia, it has just begun airing on Bayon TV.

The show was recently licensed to Azteca TV in Mexico and a version for America TV in Peru is in the pipeline. Argentina’s adaptation rights were nabbed by Telefe last year, while a French deal with TF1 was unveiled at MipTV in 2014.

In Spain, the format draws a higher than average share as a stripped series for Atresmedia’s channel Antena 3 since 2014. It has also aired successfully in Chile, broadcast by TVN, Hungary (TV2), Kazakhstan (Channel Seven) and Uruguay (Canal 10).

“We believe in great entertainment, and ‘Boom!’ has the right ingredients to be a fun family entertaining show that will capture our audiences,” said Camilo Acuna, programming senior VP at Caracol TV.

“Caracol has built one of Latin America’s strongest channel brands, and we’re excited that ‘Boom!’ will join Caracol’s winning content strategy as a summer game show for the whole family,” added Kelly Wright, head of Latin America at Keshet International.

Created by Keshet, Ido Rosenblum and July August Productions, the format fuses drama, thrill and intensity in an all-ages show that sees contestants completing intellectual and physical challenges against a clock displayed on a replica bomb in the middle of the studio.
