Deal or No Deal Returns in Mexico


The Endemol Shine format Deal or No Deal is returning in Mexico, where TV Azteca has ordered a local version after an 11-year hiatus.

Mexico City-based Endemol Shine Boomdog has been commissioned to produce the latest run of the local version of the series. Known locally as ¿Te la juegas?, the format last aired in Mexico in 2008. The new run of the show is set to premiere on the Azteca Uno channel on Monday, August 12, at 7:30 p.m., and will continue to broadcast in that time slot every day for the rest of the week.

Luis García is on board as the series’ new host. The show follows as contestants must choose from 22 numbered boxes, each of which contains a sum of money between one and 1 million pesos ($50,750). Over the course of the game, as boxes are eliminated, the player will periodically be presented with an offer from the bank, which they must decide to either take in cash and leave the game, or continue to play in an effort to cash out with a higher prize.
