Cartoon Network is on a mission to find out with a 10-episode order of Hole in The Wall, a global game show produced by FremantleMedia North America. Casting is underway and production will begin shortly for this new, “twisted” half-hour game show featuring two teams of families in competition as they face down a series of moving barriers with ever-changing cut-out shapes.
Speed, agility and a hearty sense of humor are essential tools to survive one of the trickiest, fastest, funniest and wettest shows on the planet – as contestants contort their bodies every which way to fit through the wall or else end up being swept away into a pool of water. As the rounds progress and the pace heats up, mind over matter, quick thinking, coordination, and clever teamwork play a crucial role as each team strives to maneuver through walls literally closing in on them.
Hole in The Wall became an instant ratings success story on-air and online after launching on Japan’s Fuji TV in July 2006, where it continues to rank No. 1 in its timeslot. The format created waves around the world, with FremantleMedia currently producing versions in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, China, Colombia, Denmark, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Malaysia, Mexico, Russia, Sweden and the U.K.
