Networks in the Netherlands, Thailand, Norway, Turkey and Mexico have picked up the comedy entertainment format Anything Goes (pictured) from distributor Shine International.

The format was created by French TV personality and producer Arthur Essberg and originally produced by Satisfaction – The Television Agency. It premiered on France’s TF1 in January 2012.

The Netherlands’ Talpa, Thailand’s Kanatana Group, Norway’s TV2, Turkey’s ATV and Mexico’s Televisa are the latest companies to acquire the rights to the show, which pits two teams of celebrities and comedians against each other in a series of physical and mental showdowns that take place on a set tilted at a 22.5 degree angle.

Last fall, American broadcaster Fox ordered eight episodes of the series from Carousel Television, the prodco set up by actor Steve Carell (pictured above), and Shine America. It will begin airing on Fox under the title Riot on May 13.

Local versions of Anything Goes have aired on Brazil’s Globo, Ukraine’s 1+1, Spain’s Antena 3, Portugal’s SIC and Denmark’s TV2.
