Matthieu Porte’s Can’t Stop sells Slam to Turkey as it hits 1,000 eps

SlamDistributor Can’t Stop Media has sold Slam into Turkey. The news comes as the gameshow format reaches the thousand episode mark in France, on France 3.

The crossword and trivia-based gameshow will air on TRT’s TRT School channel in Turkey. The Turkish version will be made by local producer Medyalabsinema. The initial order is for 60 episodes, which will be stripped through the week.

The format is owned and produced in France by Effervescence.

Can’t Stop said that following the success of the online game in France, which has 500,000 subscribers, a Slam app will roll out soon.

Airing through the week in a 5.30pm slot, the show generates an above channel average share of 13.3% for France 3.

Slam has every quality to become a new classic and sit next to never-ending clever formats like Countdown or Lingo with, on top of TV, a great interactive business side to it”, said Matthieu Porte, founder of Can’t Stop Media.
