SVT returns to classic format

Formats-logo-460_2Who's WhoSweden’s SVT has commissioned a local remake of classic gameshow format Who’s Who?, 13 years after a previous incarnation ended on the pubcaster.

The new version is scheduled to broadcast in spring 2016, with Nordisk Film TV attached to produce. Who’s Who? initially ran on SVT between 1998 and 2003.

Banijay Group-owned Nordisk also has taken production rights to the format in Denmark.

This comes as distributor KABO International reboots the access prime format, which Rose Bay Media and Noel Gay TV created.

The format has been put under option in France with Sony Pictures Television France and in the UK with SPT-backed Gogglebox Entertainment, whose managing director, Mat Steiner, is a partner in Rose Bay.

Who’s Who? sees three contestants face six guests, who have to answer questions, perform tasks and tell stories in order for their hobby or occupation to be guessed.
