Le Iene ([le ˈjɛːne]; The Hyenas) is a television program broadcast on the Italian channel Italia 1 . Beginning in 1997, it is a comedy/satirical show, with sketches and reports into political affairs and consumer issues. It is based on an Argentine show Caiga Quien Caiga.


The first series was hosted by Simona Ventura, Dario Cassini and Peppe Quintale. Since then, many comedians and actors have hosted, such as: Fabio Volo, Teo Mammucari, Andrea Pellizzari, Alessia Marcuzzi, Luca Bizzarri and Paolo Kessisoglu, Ilary Blasi, Luciana Littizzetto. It features several writers like Davide Parenti, Lorenzo Maiello, Roberto Marcanti, Andrea Bempensante, Fabrizio Montagner among them. Recurring features of the show, besides the reportage, are the double interviews in which two famous people are asked the same questions, and are edited together on a split screen, side by side so that they answer one after the other. The Spanish version (transmitted on Telecinco) had to close due to poor ratings, but the program later returned and in 2008 it moved to a new network, laSexta.

"Le Iene" was also the release name in Italy for the film Reservoir Dogs, and all the presenters on the show wear (like the protagonists of that movie) trademark black suits, white shirts and black ties.

In October 2006, Matteo Viviani reporter from Le Iene covertly tested deputies of Italy's lower house of parliament for drugs, by claiming to be performing TV interviews about the budget, when in fact the "make-up artist" preparing the deputies for the camera was actually swabbing their faces for samples to be tested for drugs.

Of the 50 samples from deputies, almost one third tested positive for drug use in the previous 36 hours; 12 for cannabis and 4 for cocaine.

When deputies discovered the ruse, they lobbied, on privacy grounds, for broadcast of the pertinent episode of the show to be blocked, which it was. And then they (Matteo Viviani e Davide Parenti) had to paid €5000 to avoid go to the prison.

In September 2009, reporter from Le Iene joked about the homosexuality of George Clooney at the press conference in Venice Film Festival; CNN Broadcast the news as "a man strips for George Clooney" unaware of the identity of the fake gay man.

In 2013 a report about the controversial Stamina therapy has been accused of causing pseudo-scientific misinformation.

In October 2015, Stefano Corti, Alessando Onnis and a cameraman from Le Iene reportedly harassed Moto GP racer Marc Márquez in his garage. Márquez was earlier involved in a controversial collision with Valentino Rossi at the 2015 Malaysian motorcycle Grand Prix. During the altercation, the reporters from Le Iene reportedly attacked Márquez after the latter's father had asked them to leave.
