Jeopardy!, Wheel of Fortune Global Licensees to Gather for a Workshop


LOS ANGELES/LONDON: CBS Studios International is hosting a three-day workshop in Los Angeles for the licensees of Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune from around the world.

The workshop will take place February 3 to 5 at Sony Studios in Culver City, the studio where both shows are produced. Attendees will include licensees from Azerbaijan, Denmark, Russia, Spain, Algeria, Australia, Serbia, Brazil, France, Indonesia, Turkey, the U.K. and other territories. The workshop will focus on building audiences, reducing production budgets, and monetizing the production through social media, online interactivity, mobile applications and trade-outs.

“As two of the most popular game show formats in the world, we’re excited to be giving licensees the opportunity to learn more about what makes these formats such successes on U.S. television,” said Paul Gilbert, the senior VP of international formats at CBS Studios International. “Along with insights into the U.S. formats, it will also be a chance for licensees to share best practice methods from their productions, making the workshop interactive and informative for all attendees.”
