Nippon TV’s offers up Mute It to int’l broadcasters
Japan’s Nippon Television Network Corporation has started offering worldwide format rights to its new game show Mute It!
Each episode of the 30-minute to 120-minute family-friendly studio-based game show takes contestants through four stages of games in the Hall of Silence, a custom-built giant studio with challenges and sound traps surrounding them. The one rule is not to make any sound, otherwise the Sound Watchman shows up to take the contestant away. The one who makes it through all four stages receives a large money prize.
The format was created for and produced by Nippon TV in Japan.
