The Wonderbox Being Localized in Italy, Spain & Elsewhere

The shiny-floor prime-time entertainment format The Wonderbox is set to be adapted in six different countries, including Italy and Spain.

The additional countries that the format is headed to are Canada, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. In France, the show has already been renewed by France 3 for an additional two episodes.

In the emotional prime-time format, celebrities are presented with their very own “Wonderbox” full of suprises—a long-lost friend from childhood, a song that reminds them of their past or memories of an important place—that promise to take them and the audience on an exciting adventure.

The deals were negotiated by Newen Distriubtion.

“Secuoya Contenidos is delighted to partner with Newen to bring Wonderbox to the Spanish market. We believe the show is a good example of shiny-floor feel-good TV at its finest,” said Eduardo Escorial García, contents director at Secuoya Contenidos in Spain.

“We believe the format meets the expectations of the Italian television audience of 2020,” said Mario Paloschi, CEO of Ballandi in Italy. “The mix of emotions, suprises and unknown sides of popular celebrities will captivate the Italian public as has already happened in France.”
