American comedian and author Steve Harvey will bring his television game show ‘Family Feud’ in Ghana, next year, according to a report by livefmghana.com.
Producers of the show have entered into an agreement with Accra-based TV3 and plans are far advanced to begin the broadcast in April 2020.
Like the concept has always been, the show will see two (2) families compete to name the most popular responses to survey questions in order to win cash and prizes.
“As Rapid Blue, we are totally thrilled to be bringing this light-hearted and comedic entertainment to local audiences, especially hosted by someone of Steve Harvey’s stature and passion for our continent. We are equally honored to be working with TV3,” reads a statement by Kee-Leen Irvine, Executive Producer of the show.
“We have an exciting challenge ahead of us to find teams who are confident, bubbly, funny and entertaining.
It is not about general knowledge but rather about the ability to predict the most common responses to survey questions about the warm and fascinating culture, thoughts and behavior of fellow Ghanaians, which is the foundation for a whole lot of fun and laughs. There are fabulous prizes to be won and no-one walks away empty-handed.”
“Bringing Family Feud to Africa has long been a dream of mine,” says Harvey who has hosted Family Feud since 2010. “I believe Family Feud will become a household name for local South African and Ghanaian families.
And this is just the beginning of Africa. I expect this show to lead to multiple media and business projects in and throughout the continent.”
The show will be produced by a multi-award winning production company, Rapid Blue, a leading entertainment producer for shows including Idols (Nigeria), and X-Factor (South Africa and Nigeria) on the African continent.
