A big congratulations is in order for the team at Working Dog.
The hit TV quiz series Have You Been Paying Attention? (HYBPA?) has been picked up by TEN Network U.S. owners CBS for worldwide rights to the series.
Beginning in 2013, the fast-paced quiz show hosted by Tom Gleisner, alongside regular panelists Ed Kavalee and Sam Pang, started as a 30 minute show on a Sunday night containing rotating chairs of guests answering topical questions of the week, often with humorous results. While not originally a ratings winner, the show built an audience slowly, moving time slots and eventually extending to an hour, settling on Monday nights and winning numerous Logie awards.
This is not the first venture that Working Dog has had with expanding their content to international audiences. Their previous theatre sports series Thank God You’re Here format was sold to FremantleMedia, who in turn licensed the rights to 18 countries.
Congratulations to everyone at Working Dog Productions!
