Belgian Game Show Switch Set for Dutch Treatment


ADVERTISEMENT

Switch, a game-show format created by Panenka and represented by Lineup Industries, is getting a local version in the Netherlands that will be produced by Tuvalu Media.

Switch sees contestants solve word puzzles and answer trivia questions for the chance to win a cash prize. The format will be stripped daily on AVRO Tros on NPO3 in the Netherlands starting January 29. This Dutch commission follows the show’s success in Belgium, where it has just been ordered for a third season on VRT.

Julian Curtis, co-founder of Lineup Industries, commented: “Game shows are perennially popular and we are seeing strong demand for daytime quiz formats as well as access prime-time shows that the whole family can enjoy. Switch is both—it is compelling but simple—and ideal programming to strip across the week with increasing risk and reward!”
