4 contestants, one saboteur. 2 goals. Let’s play Manipulation.
Manipulation is a new game show format,it’s based on the CBBC show ‘Trapped’ , but it comes on the market with an impact. “One of the contestants will try to sabotage the game and make the team loose, it’s the other team mate’s jobs to guess who the saboteur is.”
The point of the format, is to show how manipulative people can be, and the show is playing a bit with contests capability, to resist to pressure,and intuition. Manipulation is a show that will entertain our audience , in a dark set design, and a colourful game.
The best beats of the show are the audience interaction and the set design. We have a studio audience, and they can vote , and pick the saboteur for he next round, which will be revealed after the break. our site gives all the details about the show , team, videos,photos, behind the scene.. etc. Manipulation can be also found on Facebook “ https://www.facebook.com/ManipulationGameShow ” and twitter “ https://twitter.com/CovManipulation ”. For the set design we wanted to create something real, and a 3D look. We chose to have a metallic, and “after war” feeling, in order to create a dark but still worm feeling for our audience and contents.
Even if we did research on the show, and format, we could’ve tried to improve it more, and leave more time to edit it. Manipulation is a good idea, but it needs more development to differentiate it from other games shows, as after you watch it, the audience could get the feeling that they saw it before, and it’s based too much on ’Trapped’
Overall, I think we did a really good job, creating a format, that will work for ITV, and could be the new game show format that will be sold word wide, with just more improvement, and attention to details.
