Armoza Formats’ hit game show Still Standing is being adapted in Greece for broadcast on Antenna Group’s ANTENNA TV (ANT1 TV).

Created by Israel’s Channel 10 and July-August Productions, Still Standing sees contestants compete for a cash prize by out-guessing their opponents in a series of fast-paced trivia battles. The 200-episode first season of the Greek version is slated to begin airing in access prime time in September. The studio-based format was also recently commissioned in India, while Italy ordered an additional 70 episodes for its third installment of the show.

Giannis Latsios, the COO of content at ANT1 TV, remarked: “Antenna Group is proud to have brought one of the most successful game-show formats to Greece. Still Standing is a pioneer in the landscape of game shows, and one of our flagships for the new season’s programming, which we are developing day by day. We aspire to make an exemplary Greek version of the game show, attract our viewers’ interest and increase our lead against our rivals, helping to establish our position as the leader in our sector.”

Avi Armoza, the CEO of Armoza Formats, added: “Still Standing, as evidenced by its continued success worldwide, is an incredibly strong game show that, through its simple and engaging premise, is relevant and exciting for audiences globally. We are looking forward to seeing its newest adaptation as one of ANT1 TV’s flagship shows in Greece and are thrilled to be continuing our relationship with them on this hit format.”
