KABO International has sold the classic entertainment game-show format Who’s Who? to Latvian pubcaster LTV.

Latvian actress Zane Daudzina hosts the local version of Who’s Who? (KURŠ IR KURŠ?), which is scheduled to air on LTV1 on October 28. Who’s Who? already airs in European countries such as France, Denmark, Canada, Italy, Portugal, Sweden, Norway, Greece, Turkey and Wales.

“LTV focuses on providing programming that inspires, educates and entertains and Who’s Who? is an engaging immersive game show that fulfills this remit,” said Sergejs Nesterovs, member of the management board looking after content strategy at LTV. “The format not only allows us to create a fun-filled interactive environment, but offers home viewers and the studio audience a clearer understanding of the broad range of hobbies and professions that actually exist in real life, whilst challenging any preconceived notions. We are confident this feel-good game format will engage our viewers, and also showcase how active and creative the Latvian people are.”

“We are very excited to see Who’s Who? launch in Latvia and on the LTV platform,” added Arabelle Pouliot-Di Crescenzo, the managing director of KABO International. “It’s very rewarding to see localized versions of this versatile game format that has already attracted audiences in 11 countries to date and we look forward to it entertaining Latvian viewers for many months to come.”
