BBC, ABC, YTV launch kids gameshow Splatalot

British public broadcaster the BBC, Australian public broadcaster ABC and Canadian network YTV are set to launch physical kids gameshow Splatalot from Canadian indie marblemedia.

Three versions of the format will be shot in Toronto with hosts selected from the UK, Australia and Canada. The show will see 12 contestants compete in three rounds to get past a squad of six medieval gladiators – known as Defenders of Splatalot – to attache the castle.

Splatalot is all about the hilarity of watching contestants get splattered with the best spills instantly replayed in slow motion. With oversized props, cool special effects and lively characters, it’s sure to be a highly-entertaining adventure,” says series co-creator Matt Hornburg.

The series will be delivered in the spring 2011 and international distribution of the show will be handled by Distribution360, the recently founded distributor set up by marblemedia and SEVEN24, run by Stéphanie Röckmann-Portier.
