Family Feud is going international — Africa to be specific. Steve Harvey has been set to launch and host versions of Fremantle’s Family Feud in South Africa and Ghana. In an unprecedented deal with Fremantle, Harvey’s media company Steve Harvey Global has obtained the rights to license the format for the African versions of Family Feud. The local versions will be produced by Fremantle’s local production partner in the region, Rapid Blue. Harvey has hosted the American version of of the iconic game show Family Feud since 2010 and has since then, it has become ratings giant. Harvey is also on track to become the longest-serving host in Family Feud history. The show has also given way to meme-worthy moments and viral videos. “Bringing Family Feud to Africa has long been a dream of mine,” Harvey said. “I believe Family Feud will become a household name for local South African and Ghanaian families. And this is just the beginning in Africa. I expect this show to lead to multiple media and business projects in and throughout the continent.”
