US format distributor Small World IFT has secured a deal with the Spanish production company Miraveo for the rights to the Romanian gameshow format, Win Your Country. The agreement, finalized during Content Americas in Miami (January 23-25, 2024), entails Miraveo adapting the format locally and creating a pilot episode to attract Spanish buyers.
Win Your Country challenges contestants' knowledge about their respective provinces, countries, or states while competing against representatives from other regions. Originally conceived by Bucharest-based Zucchero Media, the show enjoyed a successful run of over 200 episodes on Romanian broadcaster TVR2.
Small World acquired the format in 2017 and produced an English-language pilot. In 2018, the company partnered with Whoopi Goldberg’s One Hoe Productions and Red Arrow Studios’ 44 Blue Productions to develop a US version of the quiz show.
Small World co-founder Tim Crescenti expressed enthusiasm about the opportunity to introduce the format to the European market, stating, “This presents a significant opportunity for us to promote the format in a major European market,” adding, “44 Blue still holds the US option.”
Crescenti was present in Miami to host the inaugural Content Americas Corpo Pitch.
