US game show Let’s Make A Deal is expanding into eight new territories, following deals struck by Marcus/Glass Productions and international sales firm Can’t Stop Media.

The format, which is produced by Fremantle in the US, is now headed to Germany, Indonesia, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Hungary, Ireland, and Poland.

In Germany, Sat 1 has revived the local version of the show, Geh aufs Ganze (Go All Out), produced by Fremantle label UFA Show & Factual. It is expected to air during Q4. The Indonesian version, Super Deal, made its comeback on broadcaster GTV last month, produced by Fremantle Indonesia (PT Dunia).

In Hungary, TV2 is commissioning the format for a daily broadcast. The local series will be entitled Zsákbamacska, the same name as the original adaptation, which aired during four consecutive years in the territory, during the 90s. It will be produced internally.

Hervé Hubert Productions, the company behind local adaptations of The Masked Singer for TF1 and Shopping Monsters for M6 as well as the original producers of Let’s Make A Deal for TF1 between 1998 and 2004, will be in charge of developing the format in France.

In Poland, FremantleMedia Polska is working on a reboot of the format which aired as Idź na całość on Polsat between 1997 and 2001.

Banijay will produce the program in Italy, while Thames TV, a Fremantle label, has taken an option for the UK and Ireland.

These deals mark the first multi-territory expansion announcement for the program since Marcus/Glass Productions, a joint production venture between Marcus Entertainment Chairman Marcus Lemonis and Glass Entertainment Group CEO Nancy Glass acquired the IP for the show last year.

“The continued expansion of Let’s Make A Deal into further international territories shows that audiences have a strong appetite to be entertained by game shows,” said Lemonis. “At a time when there is so much uncertainty and strife in the world, it’s great to be able to bring audiences together around fun and uplifting content.”
