About the Show
Get ready for BOOM!, the new game show that fuses family entertainment with the thrill and intensity of a blockbuster action movie.
Full of comedy, color, tension and excitement, BOOM! is a general knowledge quiz show that challenges teams of three players to defuse the game show’s ticking slime-bombs, by cutting the wires relating to the correct answers and leaving the wrong answers untouched. Get it right – and the players win big money. Get it wrong – and, after a tense countdown, the slime-bombs detonate, showering the players – and portions of the audience – with mystery goop that could be anything from guacamole to mashed potatoes, forcing the players out of the game.
As the game progresses and teams successfully defuse the slime-bombs, the prize money builds and the questions get harder. After six tense rounds of questions, players can choose to walk away with their winnings or to take on the more challenging “Mega Money Bomb Round” during which they stand to win up to $500,000. One mistake, and not only do they lose half of their money, but the team is in for the biggest slime blast yet. Answer correctly, and the Mega Money Bomb could be filled with cold hard cash!
BOOM! is based on Keshet International’s smash-hit format which was introduced this year at MIPTV. The original show premiered earlier this year to outstanding ratings, becoming the highest-rated game show launch ever in Israel. The BOOM! stage showcases unique 3-D projection mapping technology which features 1.3 million LED lights driven by more than 100 computers to create visual effects that take over the entire set.
Executive-produced by Jeff Apploff (“Don’t Forget the Lyrics”), and co-executive produced by Bob Boden (“The Chase”), BOOM! was created by Keshet and Ido Rosenblum.
