La Talpa, back to Netflix: The streaming platform was going to buy the rights to the reality show 13 years after Paola Perego’s last release. To launch indiscretion, a well-informed David Maggio is usually good.
According to reports from the television specialist, Netflix has purchased the global rights to the format. Thus, the reality show, which is one of the most loved by the Italian public, can return to the screens of subscribers of the platform.
“A hypothesis that should not be ignored – explains David Maggio Since then in Italy, unlike Spain, Great Britain or the United States, Netflix has not yet produced original entertainment. And La Talpa is not the usual reality show that has a strong component of adventure and mystery and would have what it takes to survive, even in our country, without live broadcasting.”

No Talpa, how does it work
La mole is a reality show in which VIPs, so-called “suspects” or under investigation, participate. The objective of the game is to find and unmask the saboteur mole who is hiding among the rivals.
The task is entrusted to both the public and the accused themselves. The audience, through television, determines the order of the suspects: the person with the most votes must face a disqualification test or cross-examination. The group instead makes its own nominations.
In the exclusion test, suspects are subjected to ten questions about the identity and actions of the mole: whoever answers correctly the least number of questions must leave the game.
