A four-part pilot series will premiere on Cj Enm’s tvN channel in February. London-based distributor Drg, which is handling sales for the format, sold the show into the market.
“Small Fortune” has also been optioned by Sony Pictures Television for a pan-regional deal in Latin America, as well as by Nent Group, which has optioned the rights for the Nordic region.
Billed as the world’s smallest physical gameshow, “Small Fortune” sees teams of friends and family members compete in minuscule games set in miniaturized worlds, often replicating well-known landmarks or historical sites, in order to win cash prizes.
“Small Fortune” premiered on U.K. broadcaster ITV last year, where it was commissioned as a 6 x 60’ series and aired in a Saturday primetime slot.
