Broadcasters in Sweden and Norway will test couples’ relationships in local adaptations of German entertainment format My Man Can.
Snowman Productions is making local shows for both Kanal 5 in Sweden and TV Norge in Norway, with the Swedish version due to air in 2013.
In the format, which first aired as Mein Mann Kann on Germany’s Sat.1 in 2010, four couples compete for a cash prize by testing how well they know each other as the women nominate their men for a range of challenges, such as eating spicy food.
Snowman previously produced a local version of the format for Kanal 5 in Denmark, with a second season already commissioned.
My Man Can is sold internationally by SevenOne International and has already been acquired in more than 40 countries, including the UK, where ITV will air a local version in 2013.
Snowman, which like SevenOne is part of the ProSiebenSat.1 Media-owned Red Arrow Entertainment Group, expanded its reach into Norway by opening an office in Oslo in February.
