Big Brother Lands in Chile


Banijay’s hit format Big Brother is to be adapted in Chile for the first time.

Produced by Chilevisión and Kuarzo, the show builds on the success of the pan-regional series, which last aired 18 years ago. The local version of Big Brother will broadcast on Chilevisión.

Michelle Wasserman, senior VP for LatAm, U.S. Hispanic and Brazil at Banijay Rights, said: “Big Brother is a tried and tested hit and we are thrilled to strike a deal for the first Chilean version. There is great momentum across Latin America for this iconic format, with Argentina’s recent return highlighting how powerful and relevant this programme still is.”

Lucas Green, global head of content operations at Banijay, added: “With last year being the best yet for Big Brother, we are excited to further build on its success and bring the legendary show to a new market in this deal with Chile. The ongoing popularity is testament to the strength of the format which enables audiences to relate, connect, and be entertained by Big Brother. We look forward to continually extending the format with new territories such as Chile, long-running series like the milestone 25th season in the U.S., and reboots including the U.K. set for 2023.”
