London FremantleMedia announced a new commission from Sweden’s SVT for its entertaining, competitive property format, Who Lives Here? Originally hailing from Canadian production company 3Bird Media, the local Swedish version is set to launch in April 2015. FremantleMedia International has also secured the worldwide distribution rights for the original Canadian version of the title for its lifestyle catalogue.

Who Lives Here?

Who Lives Here? combines the love of snooping around other people’s houses and pre-conceptions about people based on first appearances. In each episode, five strangers tour each other’s homes together and try to work out who lives where. The only information they have at their disposal are their first impressions and their knowledge of each other’s professions.

As they visit each home participants have to plot who they think lives in this particular place, matching up design style with their preconceptions of one another. At the end of the show – once all the guesses have been collated – each homeowner reveals their own place. Whoever makes the most correct home to homeowner matches wins a cash prize, not to mention bragging rights.
