French broadcaster TF1 is to launch a local version of game show Big Bounce Battle.

This marks the first international adaptation of the Endemol Shine format, originally commissioned by German broadcaster RTL.

In the style of Wipeout, the show features contestants racing against the clock to conquer trampoline-based obstacle courses.

Endemol Shine Group Creative Networks CEO Lisa Perrin said: “TF1 is the ideal home for Big Bounce Battle in France and the fact that it’s being produced in the same studios as RTL’s version demonstrates what an adaptable format it is and how easily it can be supercharged.”

The show is due to start production later this year.
