Guess My Age Gets Greek Treatment

Vivendi Entertainment’s Guess My Age has been ordered by SKAI in Greece, marking the game-show format’s 12th commission.

SKAI ordered 100 episodes of the show, which will be produced by Prosenghisi, to air daily in access prime time starting in September. The Greek deal follows as TV8 in Italy and Cuatro in Spain have confirmed renewals of the series for their September lineups. This brings the total number of episodes commissioned to 1370 for the format, which was launched in 2016.

The series sees a pair of contestants try to guess the ages of six strangers with the help of five hints, which include information like a song or movie that was released the year of the person’s birth.

Damien Porte, senior VP of global distribution at Vivendi Entertainment, said: “We’re thrilled to have found a new home for Guess My Age and start this collaboration with SKAI, paving the way for more to come. The programming strategy set by the channel (daily in access) gives our format the best chances to succeed among viewers”.

Loizos Xenopoulos, programming director at SKAI, added: “Guess My Age is one of the most distinctive and successful game show formats of the last few years. Easy-to-watch, funny, intriguing and with a solid international track record. It serves perfectly our strategy for innovative yet simple and highly entertaining shows. We are confident that it would be a great addition to SKAI’s access primetime’s lineup.”
