Redseven Entertainment has launched two major new shows this week in Germany.

The Biggest Loser returns to SAT.1 today, January 3, produced by Redseven.

Season 12 will see 14 brand new episodes, as participants fight their way from the weight loss camp on the Greek island of Naxos to the grand finale. 

The premiere episode starts with 30 people hoping to lose weight and transform their lives, with 18 then qualifying for the weight loss camp. The camp is supported by camp leader Dr Christine Theiss and coaches Petra Arvela and Ramin Abtin.

The last season of the show on SAT.1 scored record ratings of up to 13.5% market share among 14 to 49-year-old viewers. 

Also premiering this week, is Redseven’s brand new entertainment show Pokerface: Don’t Laugh!, kicking off this Thursday, January 7, on ProSieben.

In the format, 16 celebrities compete against each other in four teams of two. The challenge: you must not laugh! But bombarded with a host of crazy clips, funny fails and outrageous mishaps, it’s only the celeb with an expert pokerface who will succeed. For viewers, it’s a win win either way!

Celebrities in the first episode include Pierre Littbarski, Thomas “Icke” Häßler, Lothar Matthäus, Roman Weidenfeller, Panagiota Petridou, Matze Knoop, Laura Karasek, Jochen Schropp, Simon Pearce, Faisal Kawusi, Thorsten Legat, Joey Heindle, Jana and Thore Schölermann, Miriam and Felix Neureuther.
