TFP hit MIPCOM with new formats

THE FORMAT PEOPLE ARRIVE IN CANNES WITH A RAFT OF NEW FORMATS

October 2019:  CEO Michel Rodrigue and CCO Justin Scroggie of consultancy group The Format People, are in Cannes this week to present a raft of new formats to the international television industry.

The new slate contains a range of genres, including reality, survival and arts competitions, but the big focus this year is on game shows.

Justin Scroggie said:

“We have spent the last 12 months developing a raft of new formats, with particular attention to the studio game show genre, which our research shows is what many buyers are looking for – and not finding. Game shows are some of the trickiest formats to create, as you start with no story, no characters, no plot. You have to build a strong narrative to drive the action, emotional format beats that deliver drama, and an internal logic to the whole thing that satisfies viewers. And that’s we can do.”

As well as developing formats internally, TFP consult with broadcasters and producers globally to help develop their formats and bring them onto the world’s stage.  TFP also organise high-level formats training, and have a raft of trainers who are all senior professionals active in TV around the world.
