Azteca commissions Armoza's Still Standing
| 05 June 2015
Mexican broadcaster Azteca has commissioned a first season of Armoza Format's hit game show Still Standing.
The prime time game show format offers contestants the chance to win $1 million by out-guessing ten opponents in ten fast-paced and dramatic trivia battles. As the clock winds down, contestants fight to be the last one still standing, because if they're left scrambling for the answer, they'll literally be dropped from the game – straight through the floor of the studio.
The season will consist of 60 episodes with production set to start in September, and will be produced in-house for a slated air date of early 2016.
The broadcaster will also be opening a hub for the surrounding countries who are interested in participating. Azteca recently partnered with Armoza for the first time on the prime time entertainment show I Can Do That!, and will be going into production for it later this year.
This new deal marks the 14th territory to air Still Standing, with over 2,000 episodes aired globally and most of the adaptations doubling the channel's ratings. Still Standing recently started airing on Italy's Canale 5, winning the access prime time slot in the 25-49 commercial target audience, while also ranking first in Twitter trending during the broadcast.
"We're thrilled to see our hit show Still Standing continue to grow internationally and to prove that this game show works across the globe," said Avi Armoza, CEO of Armoza Formats. "We're very excited to be partnering with Azteca Mexico once again and to be opening a Still Standing hub for the region, as we look to further expand the reach of the show in this key region."
