Sophie Ferron, President & Founder of Media Ranch announced that the company is launching several new Formats this Spring in time for MIPTV. They include dating, cooking, celebrity and entertainment/variety programs.

From their DR (Danish Broadcasting Corp) portfolio, Media Ranch is presenting recent International Format Award nominee, Fish Bingo A live interactive game format about Fishing!! 90 fishermen/women, each wearing a number (1-90), go fish while the TV audiences play Bingo using those numbers. (1 X 110’ Live/Interactive/Green/Local); Here’s Your Hit a music entertainment program exploring what makes a hit; and Mom, He’s a Dane – a factual program highlighting the many challenges that immigrant families face in a new country, especially when dating local, outside of their own community (race, religion, creed, class).

Another dating format is Recipe for Love — a studio-based dating show with a cooking twist — a recipe for fun for ages 50+ (age adaptable), showing it’s never too late for love; and Media Ranch’s own hot entertainment/variety game show, Watch! which pits two teams against each other in a game of memory, challenging them to recall details of the extravagant variety act they just witnessed.
