Game Show 100% Being Adapted in France


The game-show format 100%, originally created by Banijay Italia, has landed its first international adaptation, set to air on France 2.

Banijay Production Media will produce the local treatment, to be hosted by Bruno Guillon. The show will see three celebrity duos try to guess the most popular answers given by a wall of 100 people, present in the studio, representative of the French population. The team that gives the most correct answers will have the chance to play the final round and win up to €150,000 for their preferred charity.

100% originally debuted on TV8 in September 2022, tripling the channel slot average for young viewers and recording solid ratings during its 154-episode run on access prime time. As well as the regular series, TV8 aired a prime time Christmas episode and four weekly specials in March.

Nagui, managing director of Banijay Production Media, said: “100% is a brilliant entertainment format which probes topics from the light-hearted to the more serious. With its initial success as a buzzworthy game show in Italy, we’re expecting audiences here to love the distinctive feature of 100 people in the studio representing the preferences and opinions of French people. This unique element promises a must-watch for viewers.”

Lucas Green, chief content officer for operations at Banijay, added: “Globally we are seeing a renewed interest in game shows which have proven successful and it’s great to see 100% begin its international journey. This show delivered audiences in Italy, and with its highly adaptable format points, we are expecting the French version to be equally popular. Banijay Production Media produce high-quality entertainment series and is set to deliver another exceptional production.”
