Eight countries will compete against each other in Mistral Production’s The Biggest Game Show in the World, based on the prodco’s successful series Intercities (pictured).

The new program has contestants representing Armenia, Belarus, China, Czech Republic, France, Russia, UK and Ukraine who will take part in various challenges to win the ultimate Grand Champion 2011 title. The show will air in each participating territory allowing local viewers to support their country and watch their teams compete in the “over-the-top” games.

The 13 episode series begins production May 25.

China’s CCTV, Channel One in Russia, ICTV in Ukraine and Canal ONT in Belarus are some of the broadcasters who have already signed on to air The Biggest Game Show in the World.

“We are very proud to have succeeded in putting The Biggest Game Show in the World together and with so many participating countries,” said Yves Launoy, co-president of Mistral Production. “We have found a recipe to integrate everyone onto one set, including smaller territories that usually can’t afford this type of grand show, and yet still keep each show personalized so that every individual country will be able to watch their team compete throughout the tournament.”

The Biggest Game Show in the World Asia will begin production this June and The Biggest Game Show in the World: South America is in preparation.
