Amsterdam-based Talpa Global has partnered with Israel’s A Cappella to globally distribute the interactive game show format The Big Picture (pictured).

“Although we rarely enter into partnerships on third party-formats, we made an exception with A Cappella as we believe The Big Picture is such a unique, connected format that’s going to change the perception of the game show,” said Maarten Meijs, Talpa Global’s managing director, in a statement.

The program, which was created by TV personality and mentalist Nimrod Harel and A Cappella, gives contestants a chance to win a million dollars by answering 12 picture-based questions. Stumped players can ask for help from a viewer playing along via a mobile app. The connected player also has a shot at winning prize money.

Talpa, the company behind formats such as The Voice and Big Brother, is also rolling out the social experiment format Utopia, which integrates digital elements into the television broadcast, and the quiz show What Do I Know?!, which has an integrated play-along app.

The company is billing The Big Picture as “the first game show in which the viewer, by using the special Big Picture app, is actually able to participate on the TV program on-screen in real time and win big money.”

Based in Tel Aviv, A Cappella creates, develops and distributes scripted and non-scripted formats worldwide.
