With the signing of presenter Matthias Opdenhövel, Das Erste ushered in a string of new entertainment shows. The first of these, Opdenhövels Countdown, made its debut on 12 April 2012. The fast-paced programme features four candidates tackling ten rounds of games, calling for physical fitness, good brains and fast reactions, as the contestants face a merciless opponent in every game, the time limit.
i&u Information und Unterhaltung TV Produktion GmbH & Co. KG chose nobeo Studio 8 for the lavishly-produced contests. The games, some of which require a huge area of floor space, also made use of the extensive covered exterior area at our site. For the debut show and for the second edition on 3 May 2012, nobeo supplied the Opdenhövels Countdown team with a complete production set featuring
optimal logistics and infrastructure.
