Israeli producer-distributor Armoza Formats has sent its studio-based competition series Double or Nothing (pictured) into France and Italy via Banijay Group.

The localized formats will be produced by H20 Productions in France and Ambra in Italy.

The hour-long Double or Nothing¬†– which Armoza developed in partnership with Tel Aviv’s Studio Glam – sees a pair of contestants take on a series of challenges together in order to win prize money.

One member of the team picks a single opponent, who must undergo the challenge first. The couple must then see if they can carry out the challenge not only better than their competitor, but twice as well. If the couple loses, they lose their prize money, but if they win, their earnings are doubled.

The game show marks the first co-development partnership between Armoza Formats and Studio Glam.

The licenses follow the recent acquisition of the series by Germany’s Tresor TV Produktions.
