The classic game show Let’s Make a Deal is getting a local remake for the Greek commercial network Alpha TV.
Launching this fall, Let’s Make a Deal will broadcast daily in access prime time, replacing Deal or No Deal. The local adaptation, entitled To Pio Megalo Pazari (The Big Bazaar), will be executive produced by FOSS Productions (an Ogilvy company) and produced by Alpha TV.
Marcus/Glass Productions, a joint production venture between Marcus Entertainment Chairman Marcus Lemonis and Glass Entertainment Group CEO Nancy Glass, holds the rights for the IP. Can’t Stop Media secured the commission in Greece.
Damien Porte, partner at Can’t Stop, said, “We’re pleased to get this daily commission in such a competitive market. Access prime time is the ideal slot for this legacy format, which has already been adapted in 23 countries from Asia to the Americas. We believe this will pave the way for more broadcasters to follow track.”
Glass added: “Let’s Make a Deal continues to deliver as a safe bet for broadcasters worldwide. We are excited for this timeless format to find a home in Greece.”
