Red Arrow Studios International has announced the sale of the popular entertainment format Beat the Channel to Spain, where it will be aired on Antena 3 in 2024. The original Beat the Channel, produced by Florida Entertainment for ProSieben (local title: Joko & Klaas gegen ProSieben) is a huge hit in Germany where it continues to grow in popularity. The latest season five reached a show high average market share of 17.9% among Viewers 14-49 and an even greater 25.2% among Viewers 14-39. The format features two TV presenters competing for a live broadcast slot with outrageous challenges.
In Spain, the show will be titled "López y Leal contra el canal" and feature Roberto Leal and Iñaki López. Eva González will host the Spanish version.
The deal marks a significant milestone for both Red Arrow Studios International and Boxfish, the production company involved. Antena 3 is enthusiastic about adding the format to its lineup, emphasizing its commitment to international success. The format has also been licensed to France, Portugal, and Italy, reflecting its broad appeal.
