Egyptian prodco draws up Exit plan

Exit 1Egyptian producer Film Maker has acquired Japanese format Exit and is lining up a local 26-part local series.

Film Maker is currently building a production set in Cairo ahead of a series. Once completed, the set will be available for future European versions of the format.

TBI understands a broadcaster is attached, though its identity remains under wraps at this point.

Eccho Rights sells the show, which originally came from Kenichiro Akiyama, who created it for Nippon TV. A US version went out on Syfy last year, and a sping off called Pharaoh launched in Thailand.

Exit sees teams of contestants attempt to escape from rooms by completing mental and physical challenges.
