Brazilian network Globo has picked up the live game show format The People’s Choice (pictured) from Tel Aviv-based Armoza Formats.

The channel will begin airing a 13-episode season of the series during primetime next year.

The format was developed by Armoza and TF1 and is based on a series of dilemmas such as, would viewers prefer to go a week without showering or a week without a smartphone? Viewers at home then cast votes and contestants in the studio must guess the decision they chose in order to win cash prizes.

Armoza launched the format at MIPCOM earlier this year and has since sold it to broadcasters in Germany, Italy, Sweden, Turkey, Thailand and Vietnam.

“The Lat Am region, and Brazil in particular, is one of our key focuses for 2015 and we are proud to be extending our reach there,” said Armoza CEO¬†Avi Armoza in a statement. “The show revolves around a very strong but simple idea of being able to compare ourselves to each other and seeing how well we know our nation, creating a live TV event with ultimate buzzworthy discussions.”
