It has been said that Japan is the birthplace of TV comedy game shows. Creating outlandish and never-before-seen programs is a Japanese specialty.
“Hole in the Wall” originated from a segment on Fuji Television’s variety show. In the show, the wall with holes in different shapes of a human simply move towards players waiting in the same posture as the shape to fit through. This quirky but simple stunt succeeded overseas because of its universal comedic appeal. The entertaining physical game show has been sold to top networks internationally such as Fox (US), BBC (UK), and CCTV (China), aired in 45 countries.
The distinguished quality of Fuji Television’s program formats has greatly contributed to the further branding and recognition of Japan’s exciting and highly entertaining television content.
