Chilevision has ordered a local version of veteran format Big Brother, marking the first time the show has been produced in Chile.

It will be produced by Chilevision and Kuarzo, following a deal with Banijay Rights.

Big Brother was previously broadcast in Chile as a pan-regional series, which last aired 18 years ago.

The agreement was brokered by Michelle Wasserman, SVP of Lat Am, USH & Brazil at Banijay Rights, who said: “Big Brother is a tried and tested hit and we are thrilled to strike a deal for the first Chilean version. There is great momentum across Latin America for this iconic format, with Argentina’s recent return highlighting how powerful and relevant this programme still is.”

Big Brother had its most successful year ever in 2022, with 33 productions airing across 26 markets. It was originally created by Endemol.
