Vivendi Entertainment’s game-show format Guess My Age has been given a Chilean adaptation, the first Latin American version of the show.
The series, commissioned by Turner Latin America and locally titled Adivina Mi Edad, airs on free-to-air channel Chilevisión and is integrated as a 50-minute episode within the network’s three-hour daily morning show, Viva la Pipol. This marks the show’s 11th adaptation worldwide. It follows closely after a raft of other countries have ordered the series, including Hungary (TV2), Italy (TV8) and Spain (Cuatro).
In each episode of Guess My Age, a celebrity and a random contestant team up to win a sizeable cash prize. In order to do so, they must guess the age of six strangers; they have the option of using a series of hints that include playing a song or showing a picture from a movie released the year the person was born.
Damien Porte, VP of global distribution at Vivendi Entertainment, said: “We are excited to see Chile, a country which has always been considered as an early adopter in the region, to be the first Latin American country adapting the format. With options running in Mexico, Uruguay and Argentina, we are confident that it will pave the way for more countries to jump in.”
Javier Goldschmied, director of programming at Chilevisión, added: “Since last year, we have implemented a new content strategy focused on family with a cross-cutting approach. Guess My Age fits naturally to our network for its friendly and dynamic entertainment content. We are sure that the audience of Chilevisión will love this format that will strengthen our new program Viva la Pipol.”
