Trash or Treasure Set for Spain


Cuarzo Producciones, a Banijay Iberia label, is working alongside Delrío Visual on a prime-time adaptation of the entertainment game show Trash or Treasure (Basura o Tesoro) for Aragón TV in Spain.

Based on the original format from Banijay’s Mastiff TV in Sweden, Basura o Tesoro marks the show’s sixth international adaptation. Spanish comedian, presenter, actor and writer Iñaki Urrutia is on board to host.

In the format, a pair of contestants will face 12 different objects. Set to walk away with the value of their chosen object, one by one, they must select which to discard. Joining the show each night will be antique dealer David Maturén, who will share the interesting backstory of each item that is showcased and some tips on what to look out for.

Juan Ramón Gonzalo, CEO of Cuarzo Producciones, said: “Game shows are extremely popular in Spain, and Trash or Treasure offers a new and unique twist on the genre. With Iñaki Urrutia at the helm, we are set for an entertaining series, which is sure to get audience members playing along at home and might even turn them into evaluation experts.”

Lucas Green, global head of content operations at Banijay, added: “This game show has performed well in numerous European markets. It is lighthearted and fun and showcases the expertise required in the field of collectibles. Trash or Treasure is a very adaptable and scalable format so can meet individual broadcasters’ needs and is proving a very attractive proposition for the international market.”
