Several producers have also optioned the format. Metronome in Norway, Tresor in Germany, Gil in Israel and Endemol in India, Portugal and Turkey have all taken options as has an unidentified partner in Italy.
In the US, the show will be hosted by actress Melissa Peterman and air on broadcast network ABC.
The US version will feature five families and take place on two stages – a shiny floor game show studio with a cheering audience and in the ‘The Babydome’.
