MIPFORMATS: UK- and LA-based production company Pop Monkey is developing a gameshow for French commercial network TF1.
The Blessed sees contestants bring 12 of the most important people in their lives into a studio to help them win cash prizes. It is a coproduction with Parisian format creator French TV, whose credits include My Family vs The Nation and Brain Busters.
Speaking to C21 in Cannes, David Roscanval, president of French TV, said that negotiations with channels in a number of other territories are ongoing. The show makes its debut at MipTV this Sunday.
In related news, two days ago TF1 won its bid to launch a new channel, provisionally titled HD1, which will be dedicated to domestic and foreign drama.
