Turkey’s Star TV to produce Target’s Restaurant format

Turkish broadcaster Star TV is set to produce a local version of British reality dining series Restaurant in our Living Room after striking a format deal with distributor Target Entertainment.

The Dogan Media Group-owned broadcaster has commissioned local production company Medyapim to produce 20 episodes of the format.

The show follows two couples as they compete against each other to provide a perfect dinner party for a group of guests that they have never met.

Meanwhile, a raft of international broadcasters and producers have optioned the format rights to the Rain Media-produced series, which airs on digital terrestrial channel Virgin1 in the UK. TV2 Denmark, RTL (Holland), W Network (Canada) have struck format deals and have picked up the British version of the series. Endemol in Spain, Finland’s Northern Alliance and Norway’s Nordisk have also optioned the format.
