Armoza Formats' hit game show Still Standing is expanding into several regions, entering Latin America through Panama and Uruguay and also landing in Hungary and Israel.
In Latin America, Panama's Medcom has licensed a first 25-episode series of Still Standing's Spanish adaptation (Ahora Caigo), which will be aired daily on their RPC Canal 4. The Spanish adaptation continues to be a success in Uruguay, with Canal 10 having extended its scheduling of the show by a further 40 episodes, bringing the total to 500 episodes aired to date.
In Spain, Ahora Caigo, produced by Gestmusic Endemol, has aired for four consecutive years with over 900 episodes broadcast to date.
Meanwhile in Israel a fourth 36-episode season is currently in production for Channel 10 to air in October, and in Hungary, M1 has now ordered its sixth season which will comprise 59 episodes.
These commissions follow on from recent licences of the format in France and French-speaking Belgium, Mexico and Italy.
"Still Standing is one of our strongest game show formats and we're thrilled to see it continue to grow, both as a format and as a ready-made," said Avi Armoza, CEO of Armoza Formats. " We're happy to see the success of the Spanish adaptation internationally, which despite concerns over language barriers, has proved to be an effective and popular finished product for the LATAM region".
