The format was also picked up by Fox in the US ahead of MIPTV, and the pilot is in pre-production by Banijay Entertainment’s prodco Angel City Factory.
Banijay International is bringing a number of formats to DISCOP, including Dilemma, which is launching internationally at the East European market.

The winner will be the last person remaining after successfully facing a series of challenging personal dilemmas.
