Pogo to launch Hole in the Wall from July 28

July 26, 2008

Pogo, the kids’ channel, will launch an exciting game show called Hole in the Wall, from July 28 at 6 pm, airing every Monday to Friday.

Hole in the Wall will engage the audience with the challenging fumbles and stumbles of the participants, and is hosted by Cyrus Sahukar. The show format is licensed from FremantleMedia and is produced by Wizcraft Television in India.

Krishna Desai, director, programming, Turner International India, said, “Pogo is India’s first kids’ channel to acquire a format show. Research and the very successful shows such as Takeshi’s Castle, Just for laugh Gags, have demonstrated that shows with physical challenges and comic moments resonate high among Indian audiences. This encouraged us to bring Hole in the Wall, with its clutter breaking format to India.”

Each episode of the action-packed Hole in the Wall comprises of two teams with three contestants each, all dressed in special team-colour costumes with cushioned gears ready to face the wall and take on the opposition team.

As the moving wall speeds towards the waiting team player/s, they are required to align themselves to the weird cut out shape/s in the approaching wall, all in seven seconds or be swept into the pool. The game requires fast thinking, dexterity and clever teamwork to keep dry and score higher points.

Pogo original production has launched an new weekly, half hour family sitcom Sunaina. The show revolves around the misadventures and crazy lives of 15 year old Sunaina Mathur, her friends and her family. The show will air on Pogo from May25, 2008.

What makes the world of Sunaina absurd yet interesting at the same time is Sunaina’s gift – her dreams tend to come true either on an actual level or a philosophical level. But her dreams are not to be ignored and are the crux of every episode.

Every day, Sunaina gets up and decides to solve a problem related to her dream. But ends up creating a problem bigger than the actual problem she dreamt.

The dreams could be about herself, her family, her friends, her school teachers, people she has read about, actors, reporters, the rude lady she met at the bus stop yesterday, or even a courier man who she is waiting for.
