Santa Barbara, California-based Foothill Entertainment will be bringing its new kids game-show series, Test The Teachers (20 x 25 minutes), to MIPTV later this month.
The company has acquired worldwide distribution rights to the series produced by Irish indie Screentime Shinawil that specializes in reality and live-event programming.
Test The Teachers is an inter-school game show where the students come up with questions, tasks and challenges to test the teachers from rival schools. Teachers will be tested on everything from sports and musical prowess, to their knowledge of European capital cities, US Presidents and pop culture, such as the latest Miley Cyrus songs.
Featured on Ireland’s RTE Two, the series is being offered outside of Ireland by Foothill as a format. New episodes are currently in development.
