DOCTORS VS INTERNET WINS FORMATS AWARD

DOCTORS VS INTERNET WINS INTERNATIONAL FORMATS AWARD IN CANNES

The NRK / Magnify Media reality gameshow “Doctors Vs Internet”, which ‘Format Doctor’ Justin Scroggie helped the Norwegian team to develop last year, has won best studio gameshow at this year’s International Formats Awards in Cannes.

Celebrating with Ole Hedemann the win by NRK of “Doctors vs Internet” at the International Format Awards.

As Justin spelled out in his recent Casebook, the premise of the show (called “What’s Wrong with You?” in Norway) sees two teams compete to diagnose the medical conditions of real people entering the studio, across three rounds. The twist is that while one team is made up of doctors, the other team are ordinary people with access to Google.

In addition to the award, “Doctors Vs Internet” is having a terrific second season in Norway, with audience share consistently above 40%, and a recent high of 46%!

Another NRK format that Justin assisted with, “Animal Attraction” is currently prepping for a second season.  And after a recent ‘surgery’ in Trondheim in March to examine another three new formats, Justin is excited by the quality and quantity of new and original ideas coming out of Norway.
