Partnerships with formats experts such as Filmpool and Studio Lambert are enabling us to bring some of the best, and most adaptable, ideas to local channels and we’re looking forward to negotiating some exciting new deals in the region at NATPE Europe. I am extremely pleased to announce the launch of a brand new constructed reality format − Lawyers and Detectives (Anwälte und Detektive). After the successful 10 pilot episodes in April of Lawyers and Detectives, RTL has now confirmed commission of 80 more episodes.”
