Danish TV Format Wins Prestigious Golden Rose At The International TV Awards

I Survived A Japanese Game Show from the Danish hit TV format Big in Japan, created and owned by Babyfoot ApS and distributed by Small World IFT won two awards at the annual Rose d'Or TV festival on May 5, 2009.
Big in Japan received the prize for Best Reality and the main award, the Golden Rose for Best of 2009. This is the first time ever that a Danish TV format has won the prestigious Golden Rose.
The Rose d'Or is the international TV award festival, held annually in Lucerne, Switzerland, and the goal has always been to reward originality, quality and creativity in entertainment. The Rose d'Or Golden Rose is one of the most important and converted awards in the TV industry.
Big in Japan has been sold in over 19 territories including the US, UK, Australia, Scandinavia, Germany, France, Holland, Italy and Spain.
The show is so far produced in five countries including the first time a Danish company has ever received a commission with one of the major US networks, ABC where the program goes under the title I Survived A Japanese Game Show.
ABC is set to broadcast the second season this summer. The biggest commercial channel in Sweden TV4 is currently showing its locally produced celebrity version with excellent ratings.
Babyfoot ApS is owned by David Sidebotham and Karsten Bartholin who are also executive producers of Big in Japan. Babyfoot has their next international TV format on its way to American TV screens and beyond with X Bomb, which is sold to Reville in the US. X Bomb is a fun and unique dating show where overconfident guys try to impress a girl on national TV only to have their ex-girlfriends interfere, which makes things very tricky for the guys. X Bomb is distributed by Nordisk Film TV World.
Karoline Spodsberg, International Director of Nordisk Film TV World, said: "It's a fantastic achievement and we are thrilled on their behalf. To receive two Rose d'Or prizes is big and genuine recognition from the international TV industry and goes to show what a creative and forward moving company Babyfoot is.
"In general the Nordic countries are renowned for its high degree of quality and creativity and its awards such as these that confirms this. This also goes to show that TV formats from the north are in high demand around the world."
