RTL Klub has commissioned a local version of Endemol format Your Face Sounds Familiar,  to air on RTL in Hungary in early 2014.

The primetime show features a well-known celebrity adapting a new identity as an iconic music performer. However, the celebrity doesn’t know whether they’re going to be transformed into someone older, younger, or the opposite sex.

The Hungarian version is the latest format deal, following deals with networks in Turkey (the Turkish version is pictured above), Greece, Ukraine, and Russia, which have all taken on Your Face Sounds Familiar. In all, Endemol has sold the format into 27 countries.

“We’re proud to have landed another substantial commission for Endemol’s latest blockbuster in one of the key territories in Central and Eastern Europe,” said Marina Williams, Endemol’s CEO for Central and Eastern Europe and the MENA Regions.
