Portugal’s RTP Orders Local Version of Joker


Global Agency has licensed the quiz show Joker for a local version to launch on Portuguese pubcaster RTP.

Valentim de Carvalho is producing, with a commitment for 200 episodes. The show will begin airing on RTP in September this year. It will be hosted by Vasco Palmeirim, a well-known TV presenter in the region.

In the format, a contestant will be given 10 questions to answer and 7 Jokers to help them. The first rule is no quitting. All 10 questions must be answered. For every correct answer, the contestants will go up one step on the money tree. Jokers can be used to eliminate wrong answers from the multiple choices offered.

Izzet Pinto, founder and CEO of Globl Agency, said: “We are incredibly grateful to be announcing this prestigious new sale for Joker, one of our most entertaining and challenging quiz shows. 200 episodes commitment of this deal already proves the strength of the format. Both RTP and Valentim de Carvalho are the best partners for launching the show in Portugal that we couldn’t ask for more. I am sure they will deliver an outstanding performance on the show together and we’re looking forward to seeing it.”
