Endemol has sold its Next One and Unbeatable (pictured) formats into the CEE region for the first time.

UnschlagbarUkrainian broadcaster Novy Channel has picked up Unbeatable – a new game show where contestants with distinctive skills have to face their toughest opponents. The 13 episode series will launch autumn 2014.

High speed general knowledge show Next One, meanwhile, has been commissioned for 85 episodes in Hungary on MTVA and 15 episodes on TV7 in Bulgaria.

Other regional deals for Endemol formats include a second run of The Money Drop on Slovenia’s Planet TV. Deal or No Deal has been renewed by Sitel in Macedonia and TV2 in Estonia.

Slightly further afield in Turkey, a new commission for the question-less quiz has been announced with Show TV ordering a 26 episode run on Show TV.

Marina Williams, CEO of Central and Eastern Europe and MENA regions said: “There’s a big appetite for high jeopardy game shows in Central and Eastern Europe and these latest deals are a great combination of our established global hits and new formats launching in the region for the first time.”

She had first predicted sales of Unbeatable into the CEE over the summer this year.
