youngest Media’s Small Fortune Being Adapted in South Korea


DRG has inked a deal that sees youngest Media’s prime-time entertainment format Small Fortune heading into production in South Korea.

The four-part pilot series will premiere on CJ ENM’s tvN channel in February.

Billed as the world’s smallest physical game show, Small Fortune sees teams of friends and family members compete in tiny games set in perfectly miniaturized worlds, often replicating well-known landmarks or historical sites, in order to win big money.

The show was initially commissioned as a 6×1-hour series by ITV and aired in the U.K. in a Saturday prime-time slot in 2019. It is due to launch in the U.S. on NBC in 2020.

Additionally, Small Fortune has been optioned by Sony Pictures Television for a pan-regional deal in Latin America and also by NENT Group, which has optioned the rights for the Nordic region.

Lucas Church, co-founder of youngest Media, said: “It’s wonderful to see Small Fortune make its way around the world. DRG has done a fantastic job helping secure such wonderful partners and we are excited to work closely with both Sony Pictures Television and CJ ENM to create their own versions of the show.”
