Discovery en Español Adapting The Question Jury


The quiz show The Question Jury, originally produced in the U.K. by Monkey for Channel 4, is getting its first international adaptation, having been licensed by Discovery en Español.

The local 20×1-hour version, entitled Debate Goleador (Winning Debate/Top Scorer), will be produced by Nippur Media. On Discovery en Español, the entertainment series will focus on the region’s much-loved topic of soccer, sports and popular culture.

Set inside a sports locker room, each episode sees five strangers work together to answer questions correctly and accumulate cash. The five highest-scoring winners go head-to-head in a bid to win the prize of final tickets to Russia.

NBCUniversal International Formats inked the deal with Discovery Networks Latin America/U.S. Hispanic.

Ana Langenberg, the senior VP of format sales and production at NBCUniversal International Formats, commented: “Discovery Networks Latin America/U.S. Hispanic acts as the perfect international partner for The Question Jury. Unlike any quiz show, it’s a hybrid reality-quiz format that promises drama and entertainment, which goes hand-in-hand with the newly developed football theme. We can’t wait to see Discovery en Español put its own, fresh spin on the format for audiences across the U.S. Hispanic market.”
