The new Media Ranch game-show format Watch! has been optioned by Talpa Germany, France’s WeMake and Matchbox Pictures, an NBCUniversal International Studios company from Australia.

Created by Dan Munday and John Kirhoffer, Watch! features two teams of four, which are challenged with watching a variety show and then using their memory skills about the acts they just witnessed. The more they remember, the more money they win.

Sophie Ferron, founder, president and executive producer at Media Ranch, said: “Watch! is an exhilarating, multi-action family program that tests everyone’s memory. We are thrilled that industry heavyweights with strong track records—Talpa Germany, WeMake and Matchbox Pictures—understand the enormous entertainment value that Watch! brings to the stage. We are taking Watch! to MIPCOM where we anticipate continued high interest, based on the enthusiastic response we received in the short time pitching the show. Media Ranch is fortunate to attract the very best creative partners in the world, such as Dan and John, and looks forward to meeting others at the market.”
