Fox Purchases Rights to Another Israeli TV Show

Fox has purchased the rights to Boom!, a new Israeli game show.

The program debuted earlier this month in Israel. Under the format, four contestants race against the clock to diffuse a bomb by cutting colored wires that hold the answers to trivia questions. Viewers can also play using a smartphone app. If the bomb explodes, the studio set shakes.

The show, from Keshet International, was first sold to a French network earlier this week at the MIPTV conference in Cannes.

Keshet is the creator of the “Rising Star” format picked up last year by a U.S. studio and elsewhere, as well as of the Emmy Award-winning show “Homeland” and “In Treatment.”
