MIPCOM Spotlight: Vivendi Entertainment


CANNES: Vivendi Entertainment, which was created following Vivendi’s acquisition of Can’t Stop Media in 2015, is looking to further the reach for the format Guess My Age.

“From the very beginning, Guess My Age was designed to become a global format,” says Matthieu Porte, the company’s executive VP of international and development. “Guessing someone else’s age is a universal matter, which we have packaged in a highly addictive gameplay so that each episode brings nostalgia, suspense and emotion to every age group.”

Vivendi Entertainment also brings to Cannes Time’s Up, a new family-entertainment game show based on a famous board game. The format sees two teams of teenagers, each paired with a celebrity, compete in a live-action game. Love à la Carte, meanwhile, gives four single chefs the chance to find real love and a partner for life.

“We are looking for the next paper ideas that we will commission and transform into formats with strong international appeal,” says Porte.
