Among the finalists - MIP CANCUN Formats Pitch 2020

Vertical Maze

Production company: Gammy (Gamaliel Paulus S.) 
Country: Indonesia
Logline: The Maze is usually played horizontally but what if it is arranged vertically? In the first round, three teams will compete to get through a giant vertical maze. The first person from each team will enter to the vertical maze while the second person will navigate the directions. Only one team who has the fastest time to press the buzzer will win and go to the final round. In the final round, two people of the winning team will enter the vertical maze simultaneously. If they successfully hit the 6 buzzers within the specified time, they will win the grand prize.

Trix & Trax

Production company: TrixandTrax LLC
Country: Venezuela
Logline: TrixandTrax is the talent competition for the TikTok generation. In this docu-reality & competition format, talents from two schools compete creating short-form video performances that are published on social media. Each school is led by a captain who, in secret, must make choices that ultimately impact the school chances to prevail.  A spin of a wheel of fortune, whose spaces are labeled based on comments to video performances posts, determines the winning school, delivering a game-show-like experience where surprise and luck keep audiences engaged.

Celeb Diaries

Production company: Secuoya Contenidos
Country: Spain
Logline: Celebrities’ teenage diaries exposed, just for a laugh! A sharp host reads out loud celebrities’ teenage diaries. The mortifying twist? Stars play themselves as teenagers in sketches based on their real adolescence. Other celebrities comment along, add their own memories and many laughs. Worst nightmare? Funniest trip back in time!



Max Planner

Production company: ZOLKING 
Country: MÉXICO 
Logline: A group of professionals and amateurs dedicated to event planning live inside the most intense party house. Each chapter compete in an individual challenge for being the captains of one of the 2 teams that face (faced) against time by creating in just 5 days, two extraordinary parties for the most diverse and demanding customers who want themselves. Every party is at risk of being boycotted (the boycott) by our fearable bots, challenging the temple of the planners who are rated minute by minute by three judges who will eliminate one of the team planners with the lessest week score.
