‘Feud’ heads to Florida

Fremantle game show to Universal Studios Orlando

“Family Feud” is joining the ranks of gameshows departing their home base for better deals elsewhere.

“Feud,” which is also switching hosts this fall (the new emcee is Steve Harvey), will move its production home to Universal Studios Florida in Orlando.

FremantleMedia North America will produce 165 new episodes of the syndie gamer in Florida starting Sunday, July 10.

Gaby Johnston and Kevin Williams continue as exec producers as the current revival of “Feud” enters its 12th season.

Deal was struck by FremantleMedia and Universal Orlando, along with the city of Orlando and the Orlando/Orange County Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. But according to the Florida Film Commission’s website, the state offers a cash rebate of between 15% and 22% to eligible film, TV and musicvideos shot in the state.

Universal Studios Florida is no stranger to gamers; in the past it’s hosted shows such as “Fear Factor,” My Family’s Got Guts,” “Beat the Clock” and “Wheel of Fortune” on occasion.

Harvey is also familiar with the facility, having taped an episode of his WB series “The Steve Harvey Show” there.

Debmar-Mercury distributes “Feud.”
