MIPCOM: Dating, gaming formats lead NBCUniversal International’s line-up
London – NBCUniversal International’s MIPCOM line-up features new and highly-anticipated series from NBC, USA Network, Oxygen and Bravo. NBCUniversal’s established formats Baggage, Average Joe, Top Chef and Real Housewives will be joined by NBC’s Stars and Stripes and Ready for Love, USA Network’s The Moment, E!’s Opening Act, and Bravo’s Newlyweds.
Dating formats continue to gain ground with buyers. Baggage, in its fourth season on U.S. network GSN, recently launched in the UK (Channel 4) and has been licensed to Denmark (TV2) for a 2013 launch. The format was also optioned in Germany, Norway, the Netherlands, Sweden and Finland.
Average Joe, another dating format, was picked up for a second season in France after the programme performed outstandingly for M6 and W9. It is also being optioned in Germany and Spain. NBCUniversal Formats will also be pre-selling Ready for Love, a relationship series from executive producer Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives) to premiere on NBC in Spring 2013.
Quiz-based gameshows also continue to be favourites amongst international broadcasters. Still Standing aired in Brazil (Bandeirantes) and China (Jiangsu Satellite) this year with increasing interest in the format across Asia Pacific territories. In line with this, NBCUniversal is introducing a new gameshow format Danger Zone from Chocolate Media.
