Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune Get German Versions This Fall

According to an article from, German broadcaster RTL is filling its new channel RTL+ with 60 episodes of a local version of both Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune. Nerds will no doubt leave comments that say that it’s been about a decade since the country had a version of either. “We absolutely love game shows and believe Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy fill a huge gap in the current market, and appeal to both those who fondly recall the original runs as well as viewers who’ve never seen the shows,” Astrid Quentell, SPT Germany MD, said in a statement.
