Banijay format ‘Blow Up’ inflates with RTL Germany adaptation

Blow Up

RTL Germany has commissioned a local version of Banijay entertainment format Blow Up.

Produced by Banijay Productions Germany and locally titled as Die Ballon Show, the format follows the nation’s best balloon artists battle it out.

Within a limited timeframe, they must complete unique challenges and wow the expert judges with their creations if they want to be crowned the best balloon artist.

The format was originally created by EndemolShine Nederland for RTL 4, where it launched earlier this year. As previously reported, Blow Up is also being adapted by Endemol Shine Australia for Channel 7 and 7plus.

Banijay Productions Germany is behind formats such as Temptation Island and Battle of the Reality Stars. It was recently announced that the firm will also produce Big Bounce Battle for RTL Germany, with the show returning after a five-year hiatus.

Arno Schneppenheim, MD of Banijay Productions Germany, said: “I can’t wait for German audiences to be blown away by the designs and imagination the balloon artists possess.

“After watching an episode and seeing the creations, you will forget any associations you may have had between balloons and children’s parties. The teams at Banijay Productions Germany and RTL Germany are ready to bring this show, which is fun, unpredictable, and full of warmth, to viewers of all ages.”
