‘The Circle: France’: Release date, plot, trailer and all you need to know about the reality show's French edition
People compete over games, dating, food, business ideas, and whatnot. But have you ever thought of how it would be to have a competition where you strive to be a social media star for a huge reward? Well, ‘The Circle’ is one such show that checks off that box for everything that’s worth competing for.
After four successful editions across the UK, US, and Brazil, the popular reality show will now see contestants in France competing against each other for $1,10,643 prize money.
‘The Circle: France’ will drop its very first season on Netflix on April 9, 2020
The Netflix original is designed in the same way as its other editions. Eight players/contestants are put up in the same apartment building but none of them know about the others; no meeting, no face-to-face interaction. They live in their individual apartments and communicate with the others only using their social media profiles. But these social profiles are not the mainstream ones that you would expect. They get to use a social media app, exclusively designed for the show, wherein they can present themselves the way they want- real people or fake identities. No matter what strategy they devise to keep themselves in the game, the ultimate goal is to be rated by other contestants and not be blocked. At the end, the one with highest ratings become influencers and take the prize home. There’s definitely a lot of drama, flirting, catfishing and social wars involved, making it a fun and interesting watch.
The channel has not shared any information on whether there is a host on the reality show or not. Watch this space as we get to you more updates and information on the same.
Tim Harcourt is the creative director of Studio Lambert, which produces the British and American versions of the show, who also initiated the French edition of the reality show.
Sneak a peek at the upcoming French version of the strategic reality show.
Adapted from a British concept launched on the BBC in 2018, 'The Circle' brings its participants together in the same building. They live alone, in separate apartments, without ever meeting. Their only way to exchange is a kind of social network that allows them to chat online and also offers them games and challenges.
