Having launched at MIPTV 2013, two of FremantleMedia’s newest formats have already generated commissions from broadcasters. The feel-good format, Family Harmony, created by Attraction Images, completed three brand new deals and two recommissions. Local versions of the title will launch in Ukraine (Inter) and Kazakhstan (Khabar).

RTS Un in Switzerland has already committed to a second season following the show’s successful debut in May 2013. The news brings the total number of markets in which the format will appear to six. 


Meanwhile, the dance contest format Everybody Dance Now from FremantleMedia’s Blue Circle has been recommissioned for Holland’s RTL4, the most-watched commercial station in the country, following a hugely successful first series. A local version of the title is due to air shortly in Thailand; two other commissions are imminent for 2014.
