Chinese pubcaster CCTV has licensed two formats from Israel’s Armoza Formats and renewed the game show Upgrade for a third season.

All three programs will be produced in partnership with Beijing Century Media. The first season of Upgrade – developed by Armoza Formats and Tanin Productions – aired on CCTV2 in September 2013 and the second debuted during Chinese New Year.

The half-hour game show goes into people’s homes and offers them a chance to upgrade their personal belongings via a trivia challenge.

CCTV has also ordered House Call, an hour-long factual format developed by United Studios of Israel. In each episode, a team of doctors visits a different family and forces them to examine how their lifestyle impacts their health.

The third format is the 45-minute Extreme Wedding Album (pictured above), developed by Reality Productions and Channel 10. The show challenges a bride and groom to participate in an action-filled wedding photo shoot for a chance to win an all-expenses paid wedding.

House Call and Extreme Wedding Album will premiere later this year.
