Global Agency’s latest quiz show format Joker has been piloted by France 2.

After its launch at MIPCOM, Joker has been one of the most talked about formats from Global Agency. It is now one of the most popular projects in the company’s catalogue. Joker recently started airing on TRT, Turkey’s national public broadcaster and raised the channel’s ratings by 300%.

Following the sale to producer Herve Hubert, who is famous for French quiz shows, Joker was quickly piloted by France 2. The pilot was at TRT Studios, Istanbul and it was filmed with great success. The production team shot the pilots with three different famous hosts and three different contestants from France.

Negotiations for Joker continue in several countries including Italy and Spain.

About Joker

“Joker” is a fast –paced, dynamic and exciting quiz sho, where it’s easy to make the money, but much harder to keep it! Each contestant has to answer 15 multiple choice questions and there are no eliminations for wrong answers. The contestants start with 10 Joker wildcards, which they can use to eliminate a wrong answer if they don’t know the correct answer. For every right answer, the contestant moves higher up the money tree, but for every wrong answer, contestants move four levels down and lose thousands of their prize money. At the end of the 15th question, the contestant wins the prize equivalent to their position on the money tree.
