Astro introduces local adaptations of U.S. popular family game show, ‘Family Feud’, soon in Malaysia.
Following a partnership with Fremantle, Astro has initiated production for three versions of ‘Family Feud Malaysia’: firstly, in Bahasa Melayu premiering on Astro Ria (Ch 104), followed by the Tamil version on Astro Vinmeen (Ch 202) and thirdly, an English version premiering on PRIMEtime (Ch 704).
Popular local hosts, Nabil Ahmad, Dr. J. Ram and Douglas Lim will anchor the respective shows, following the footsteps of American comedian, Steve Harvey.
‘Family Feud Malaysia’ kicks off with the Team Leads of both teams competing at the podium to answer the first question. The fastest contestant who presses the buzzer will be given the opportunity to answer. If the answer provided is at the top of the list of ‘survey’ responses, that team will proceed to guess the subsequent answers. If it is not, the opponent team will attempt to guess an answer higher up on the list. Responses listed are based on a survey conducted amongst 100 participants locally. The team with the highest marks will proceed to the fast money round for a chance to take home a cash prize of RM5,000.
Astro has always been a proponent of gameshows even creating its own formats like All In To Win and The A Game. This month, Family Feud format will kick off with “Celebrity Family Feud Malaysia” every Monday at 11pm, involving celebrities as captains for their teams. In addition, there will also be half-hour episodes featuring non-celebrity participants, every Tuesday, at 11pm.
There will also be special episodes celebrating Aidilfitri, from 1 to 9 Syawal, at 12pm, featuring popular cast and celebrities from Astro hits including 'Projek High Council', 'Andai Itu Takdirnya', 'Isteri Halal', former contestants of 'Gegar Vaganza', 'Big Stage' and more. The winnings of the celebrity editions will be donated to selected charities.
