“TV total Wok World Cup”
The TV show returns
The sporting competition show “TV total Wok-WM” returns to TV after a seven-year break. Inventor Stefan Raab is a producer.
After a seven-year break, “TV total Wok-WM” is returning to the ProSieben program. The broadcaster announced this on Monday. Show inventor Stefan Raab (55) will be on board as producer of the sporting live event. “It’s time that ProSieben shows major sporting events again. The Super Bowl was just the warm-up,” Raab is quoted as saying by the broadcaster. The TV legend left the limelight completely in 2015.
“The ‘TV total Wok World Cup’ is the mother of all ‘TV total’ events. In winter 2022/2023, what belongs together comes together: wok and ice rink, genius and madness, tradition and Olympic spirit, sport and ambition, the ‘TV total Wok WM’ and ProSieben”, broadcaster Daniel Rosemann (41) is also happy.
In front of the camera, the viewers again have the pleasure of Sebastian Pufpaff (45), who has also been leading through the new edition of the Raab show “TV total” since autumn 2021.
