Greek television network Star Channel has ordered 5 Gold Rings, an interactive game show format by Netherlands-based producer Talpa Media and ITV Studios prodco Possessed.

Greece is the fifth country to pick up the program, following the Netherlands, France, Israel and the UK, where it was ordered by commercial broadcaster ITV.

5 Gold Rings sees contestants answering questions by placing rings across an interactive LED floor. Using the program’s app, audiences of the program can play along. Since August, the game has been available to the app’s users even when the program is not on the air.

“We’re very excited to start up this new partnership with Star Channel,” says Talpa Global MD Maarten Meijs in a statement. “Having a format appealing to so many broadcasters around the globe is an incredible accomplishment we’re very proud of.”
