Still Standing Gains Traction in Asia

Created by July-August Productions, Still Standing sees ten contestants battle it out to win $1 million. As the clock ticks, contestants participate in a series of fast-paced trivia battles to avoid being “literally” dropped from the game, through the studio floor.
To date, over 2,500 episodes of Still Standing have transmitted globally. The Thai adaptation, which airs on leading network, Channel 7 became the territory’s number one game show in December and has since been commissioned for a third season of 100 episodes.
