The African arm of Swedish broadcaster, Modern Times Group (MTG), has acquired rights from Israel-based format producer and distributor, Armoza Formats, to produce local versions of its factual entertainment series, The Package, in Ghana and Tanzania.
MTG Africa will air the adaptations of the format in English on Viasat1 in Ghana, and in Swahili on TV1 in Tanzania. The move is a part of company’s strategy to introduce more localised versions of proven international formats.
The Package was originally aired in Israel and has been remade for channels including Greece’s Alpha TV and Brazil’s SBT. Germany’s ProsiebenSat.1 recently ordered its own version.
