Shine France has secured remake rights to quiz show “Decimate”. Originally created by Hugh Rycroft and co-developed and produced by Red Arrow Entertainment’s CPL Productions, “Decimate” was recently commissioned by the BBC, where actor, singer and comedian Shane Richie will host.
Created by Hugh Rycroft and co-developed with CPL Productions, “Decimate” sees a team of three contestants fight to maintain a wall of cash over four rounds. With every wrong answer their total is ‘decimated’ – reduced by 10 percent. When will the wall come crashing down?
“We are very pleased to have the opportunity to produce ‘Decimate’ in France. This new modern game show perfectly matches the values conveyed by Shine France namely a large entertainment innovative, inclusive and family. We look forward to working on the project” says Thierry Lachkar, CEO Shine France.
Henrik Pabst, Managing Director, Global Format & Factual Distribution at Red Arrow International says “‘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!”
A team of three players must answer questions in order to preserve as much cash as possible. Each time a player answers a question incorrectly, the prize money is “decimated”. The cash left in the wall, after all three team members have played, will be what they go on to play for in the final round.
