London – FremantleMedia announce seven new commissions for the award-winning reality format, My First Holiday, which is based on a home-grown idea from FremantleMedia Belgium. This heart-warming series was first sold to Finland and has not only been recommissioned for a second season by the Finnish channel Jim / Nelonen Media, but is also being produced by FremantleMedia for RTVCM (Spain), TTV (Poland), VRT (Flanders) and RTBF (French-speaking Belgium) and by No Pictures Please for RTL 5 (The Netherlands). Additionally, it was licensed to JOJ (Slovakia).

As well as the new commissions, My First Holiday was the cause of celebration having recently won the distinguished Format Finlandia Award and was said to have ‘brought a fresh point of view to travel formats’ by the judges.
