MIPCOM Spotlight: BBC Studios


BBC Studios is bringing the prime-time entertainment show The 1% Club live to the Hi5 Studio in Cannes, where MIPCOM attendees can participate in the international hit.

In the series, the host engages contestants with logic-based questions that ultimately reveal whether they have what it takes to join the exclusive 1% Club. “The 1% Club has already proven to be a hit with buyers,” says Matt Forde, managing director of global entertainment.

Also on the format slate, Lost Dogs: Live calls upon the public to help reunite missing dogs with their devastated owners. Bridge of Lies sees teams of contestants competing for cash by crossing a bridge on the studio floor, stepping on the truths and avoiding the lies within the time limit.

“Our MIPCOM slate this year perfectly demonstrates BBC Studios’ range and versatility of format titles,” Forde adds.
