GIL FORMATS’ ‘PRANK STAR’ LANDS NEW DEALS IN CHILE AND BELGIUM
Butterfish Group in French-speaking Belgium, and Efe3 in Chile have both concluded deals to take primetime Entertainment format, ‘Prank Star’, for their respective territories. These deals add to current ones secured in France by R&G, Spain by Zebra Productions, Holland & Flemish-speaking Belgium by Tuvalu and in the US by Lionsgate. The Italian version of the format launched on Mediaset’s Italia 1 in March 2017.
‘Prank Star’ is an entertainment format set in a studio that revolves around the search for the country’s best prankster.
Nationwide auditions find the funniest people who think they have what it takes to be the nation’s Prank Star. Once through the audition process, the show gives contestants specific pranks, hidden camera challenges and comedy scenarios that they must then try to pull off. The best pranksters advance to the Grand Finale, where they perform the most daring prank on the biggest scale they have ever attempted.
