Marcus/Glass, Can’t Stop take US gameshow Let’s Make a Deal into eight new territories

American gameshow Let’s Make a Deal is expanding into eight new territories through a raft of deals secured by Marcus/Glass Productions and international sales company Can’t Stop Media.

Marcus Lemonis

The daily show, which is produced by Fremantle in the US, is headed to Germany, Indonesia, France, Italy, Hungary, the UK, Ireland and Poland.

In Germany, broadcaster Sat.1 has revived the local adaptation of the show, Geh aufs Ganze (Go All Out). The revival, produced by Fremantle label UFA Show & Factual, has been a success in primetime and has recently been renewed for a second season.

In Indonesia, local adaptation Super Deal, produced by Fremantle Indonesia, made a comeback on broadcast network GTV last month.

In France, Hervé Hubert Productions, which is also behind local adaptations of The Masked Singer for TF1 and Shopping Monsters for M6, is developing the format, while Hungarian network TV2 has commissioned the format for daily broadcast.

Nancy Glass

Meanwhile, in Poland, FremantleMedia Polska is working on a reboot of the format, which previously aired under the name Idź na Całość on Polsat between 1997 and 2001.

Banijay is also developing an adaptation of the format in Italy, while Fremantle-backed Thames TV has optioned the format in the UK and Ireland.

These are the first adaptation deals since Marcus/Glass Productions last year acquired the rights to the format from Hatos-Hall Productions.

Marcus/Glass Productions is a joint venture between TV host and producer Marcus Lemonis, who is CEO of Marcus Entertainment, and producer Nancy Glass, who is CEO of Glass Entertainment Group. In December, London-based distributor Can’t Stop Media inked a deal to shop the format internationally.

In the US, the most recent iteration of Let’s Make a Deal has been on air since 2009 on CBS. It is now in its 13th season and has aired more than 2,000 episodes. The original format debuted back in 1963.
