Itv Studios agrees deal for Catchpoint in Hungary ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE) has secured a second territory commission for its new physical gameshow Catchpoint with TV2 in Hungary.

TV2 has ordered a 25x60' series which is due to air in the territory later this year.

Hungary is the first territory to commission the show after the UK. A co-production by ITV Studios labels Possessed and 12 Yard, Catchpoint launched on BBC One in the UK in March with a peak of over 3.5m viewers and a 21% share.

Pascal Dalton, Vice President, Global Format Sales for ITV Studios Global Entertainment, said: “Catchpoint received a strong response when we introduced it to buyers at our annual formats festival in February and at MipTV last month, and so we are delighted by this second commission of the format – with other territory conversations ongoing. When it comes to balls dropping on gameshows, there is no better fun to be had on TV than Catchpoint.”

Catchpoint is the physical gameshow in which you don’t have to get the correct answer but being close helps! Two teams of two compete in a series of picture questions displayed on 10 giant screens. To answer the question one contestant must stand in front of the picture they believe is the right answer. However, to put money into their account they must catch the ball which will be dropped when released by their teammate's answer. If they are right, the ball will simply drop into their hands but, if they’re wrong, they still have the opportunity to dash, dive or leap to catch it from where they are standing. Full of unique, visual questions, nail-biting tension and hilarious fun, this a game where anyone can win.

The deal with TV2 was brokered on behalf of ITV Studios Global Entertainment by James Meyer, Sales Manager EMEA.
