"Let's Make a Deal"
Marcus/Glass Productions and the international sales team Can’t Stop Media announced the hit U.S. game show “Let’s Make a Deal,” produced by Fremantle, will be expanding internationally in eight new territories: Germany, Indonesia, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Hungary, Ireland, and Poland. This marks 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 hit 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.”
Consistently ranked among the top titles among the game genre in the United States, the Wayne Brady–hosted show is a reboot of the classic game show. The show, which has aired on ABC and NBC in previous runs, has been on-air daily without interruption on CBS since October 5, 2009, for a total of 2000+ episodes. Now in its 13th season, “Let’s Make a Deal” currently ranks as the #2 daily game show in America. “The non-stop success of the U.S. version has resulted in a tremendous amount of interest from international markets,” added Glass. "Can’t Stop has closed deal after deal very quickly. We look forward to them selling more territories in the coming months.”
Matthieu Porte, Can’t Stop media cofounder, said: “‘Let’s Make a Deal’ is such a fantastic format and brand that it only took us six months to get it back on the radar in eight territories. It is only the beginning as we feel this format has similar potential, with its timeless elements and mechanics, to brands such as ‘The Price Is Right,’ ‘Wheel Of Fortune’ or ‘Family Feud.’”
