Deal or No Deal Returning in Spain


The game show Deal or No Deal is to return in Spain after a 12-year hiatus, produced by Gestmusic, part of Banijay Iberia.

Known locally as ¡Allá tú!, the version will air on Telecinco with Jesús Vázquez as the host. The Banijay-owned format has been commissioned in over 80 territories with more than 350 productions.

Gestmusic has produced Money Drop, among others, in Spain, in addition to creating international hits such as Your Face Sounds Familiar, which is the most travelled Spanish format to-date.

Tinet Rubira, managing director of Gestmusic, said: “We are thrilled to be bringing back this iconic format with the opening theme tune still resonating with so many in Spain. We are adding new twists to the beloved series, but of course, audiences can still expect to feel closely connected to the contestants and our charismatic host.”

Lucas Green, chief content officer of operations at Banijay, added: “Game shows continue to attract large audiences, and at Banijay, we’re proud to own and create strong titles which deliver the excitement and jeopardy that keeps audiences hooked. Deal or No Deal is in rude health, with extremely successful long-running series in territories like the Netherlands and big, bold returns in markets, including the U.K. and Spain.”
