Wheelhouse Entertainment’s Spoke Studios has acquired the U.S. rights to comedy game show The Big Crazy Game Night (Le Morning Night) from Paris-based studio WeMake.
The show (pictured) was developed and produced by WeMake and Princesse Béli, first launching March 19, 2020 on broadcaster M6 in France.
In each episode, two celebrity teams go head-to-head to compete in a variety of challenges — from performing karaoke with “alternate” lyrics to screening awkward videos without laughing.
The winning entertainer of each episode will get some valuable airtime immediately after the show.
“The Big Crazy Game Night is a fun and modern comedy-game show. This co-viewing format is definitely appealing to all target groups. We are thrilled to see our format travel to the U.S. and launch this new chapter with Scott Lonker and his amazing team,” WeMake founder Bouchra Réjani said in a statement.
New York- and Los Angeles-based Spoke Studios’ current projects include Assembly Required with Tim Allen for History; Becoming for Disney+; Lyft Comics (w/t) from Kevin Hart for YouTube; an upcoming streaming series with TikTok collective Hype House; Operation Awesome for BYU tv; and feature film Compton Cowboys for Fox Searchlight.
WeMake, founded in 2017, produces original scripted and unscripted content across all platforms for both international and French markets.
