French Version of Silent Library Ready for MYTF1 MAX


The French-language version of Nippon TV’s unscripted entertainment format Silent Library, produced by Ah! Production, makes its debut today.

Titled Silent Library-Si tu fais du bruit… C’est fini!- (If you make noise, you lose!), the eight episodes have started to stream on MYTF1 MAX, TF1’s online platform, from April 15.

The format has been licensed to more than 15 countries, including the U.S., the U.K., Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, and most recently, Thailand, Vietnam and Mongolia.

Mikiko Nishiyama, managing director, international business development, Nippon TV, said: “For many years, Silent Library has triggered waves of laughter throughout Japan and is a legend among show segments. Following local versions in over 15 countries, it is an incredible honor to have the charms of this unscripted format be recognized in France at an opportune moment when the streaming market is transforming drastically. I have no doubt it will be a successful title that leaves countless viewers in stitches.”

Antoine Henriquet, founder and CEO of Ah! Production, said: “We are very excited by this adaptation of Silent Library. We have always been very fond of this format and cannot wait for the French audience to discover it and have as much fun watching it as we did, making it!”
