Israel-based Armoza Formats has inked a raft of international deals for variety show format I Can Do That! (pictured).

The series – which pulls a group of celebrities from their comfort zones to engage in such live acts as singing, dancing, magic and physical challenges – is to be adapted in India, Vietnam, Croatia, Albania and the U.S. Hispanic markets.

Hispanic cable net Telemundo and Mexico’s Azteca will jointly develop the Spanish-language version of the series, Si Se Puede, which will be hosted by Chilean TV presenter Rafael Araneda. Produced in Mexico by FremantleMedia Latin America, the series will feature 12 celebrities from both networks and will begin broadcasting in mid-September on both channels.

In Asia, India’s Zee TV will launch an 11-episode run this October airing twice a week with actor-director Farhan Akhtar serving as host, while Vietnam has licensed the variety show for HTV, Style TV and Info TV, with the local adaptation set to debut across all three channels in June 2016.

Elsewhere, Croatia has begun production on its localized version, which has been commissioned by pubcaster HRT. The network will air eight episodes beginning at the end of November. Albania’s Top Channel TV, meanwhile, will launch the series at the end of October with a 10-episode run. The commission marks Armoza’s first license deal within the country.

NBC recently renewed I Can Do That! for a second season in the U.S. The format has now been licensed in over 20 countries, including Italy, Brazil, Finland and Spain.
