Televisión Española (TVE) of Spain has started production on Play or What?, a new gameshow based on the BBC format Ready or Not that will soon air in the afternoons on broadcaster La 1.
BBC format Ready or Not
The format debuted on BBC1 last year and comes from Remedy Productions and sister company Argonon International. The deal with TVE came through UK-based Magnify Media, which distributes the format, and Madrid-based prodco Secuoya Content.
The format sees unsuspecting members of the public ambushed on the streets with cash prize rewards for answering questions correctly.
Members of the public are the surprise stars of this gameshow in which humour meets hidden camera on location. “It does not matter where you are in Spain or what you are doing,” said TVE.
“The team will be ready to surprise you and make you participate in their games. You never know when the hosts of the programme can appear.”
The Spanish version will see nine comedians and presenters surprise people in the street and in shopping centres and make them participate in their games.
