Leading independent distributor All3Media International today announced Warner Bros. Discovery has commissioned the latest version of Nexiko’s award winning celebrity quiz show Head to Head, in Finland .
The commission will see 16 episodes of the timeless quiz show launch next year under the title Kaikki vs Kaikki, with Rabbit Films producing the Finnish version.
In Head to Head, celebrity duos compete in fresh, unexpected combos. Each season is structured as a tournament: only the highest-scoring celebrity teams progress to the semi-finals with just one celebrity pair crowned as champions. Along the way, the celebrities will impress us and embarrass themselves in equal measure, fuelled by non-stop bickering with the hosts and tongue-in-cheek segments that create a constant element of surprise and entertainment.
Warner Bros. Discovery’s adaptation joins a slate of success stories for Head to Head which has been commissioned for an eleventh season on Kanal 5 in Sweden (known locally as Alla Mot Alla). TVN in Norway is in production for an eighth season launching in spring 2024 and Denmark’s Kanal 5 new version recently launched to ratings winning success.
Originally produced by Nexiko for Kanal 5 and Discovery Networks Sweden, Head to Head was awarded the Kristallen for Best Entertainment Program in 2019 and 2022.
Nick Smith, EVP Formats at All3Media International, commented, “Head to Head is going from strength to strength and we’re thrilled to welcome Warner Bros. Discovery on board as the latest partner. Already a proven success in Sweden, Norway and Denmark, we feel confident the format’s light hearted and hilarious gameplay and brilliant celebrity pairings will connect with a Finnish audience. Original, affordable and studio-based Nexiko has created a game show that is easy to adapt to suit any slot or channel and we look forward to seeing Head to Head continue to reach audiences around the world.”
