All3Media calculating international launch for Algorithm

TV3---The-Algorithm-5All3Media International is set to launch new gameshow Algorithm internationally after its commission by Ireland’s TV3.

The free-to-air broadcaster has said it will launch the new 10x60mins show next spring, and All3 will handle sales of the format and finished series.

Billed as a man versus machine contest as players take on a computer – The Algorithm – over rounds of questions, the gameshow is produced by TV3’s in-house 3Studios and fledgling North American indie Soshefeigh. Radio and TV presenter Ray Foley will host the Irish show.

All3Media part-funded the show and will now launch it internationally.

Nick Smith, VP format sales at All3Media International said: “We have already grabbed the interest of several leading broadcasters from Europe and Australia – all of whom visited the shoot in August and have expressed keen interest.”

He added: “All3Media International is confident that the show will be very well received at MIPCOM and ATF this year at its launch.”
