Spotlight: Nippon TV


This fall, Nippon TV is offering two brand-new formats: Piggyback Challenge and Double Booking.

The unscripted game-show format Piggyback Challenge sees couples compete against other pairs while piggybacking their partner as they clear tasks such as shopping, jogging or dining within a time limit, in pursuit of their dream prize. If they fall off, they are out.

The scripted format Double Booking begins with a scenario of a man accidentally booking dates at the same time with two different women. What begins to feel like a romantic comedy turns suspenseful with an unexpected twist. The series “reflects the times, with a look and feel you’ve never seen before,” says Shigeko Cindy Chino, associate managing director of international business development at Nippon TV.

“We are more focused than ever before on creating exciting new formats, with a new kind of energy in our creativity,” adds Chino.
