Star to launch Indian version of Fox Look’s Beauty and the Geek

Star (India) is launching a Hindi-language version of Fox Look format Beauty and The Geek that will air in 20 territories. The deal is one of the last deals before Fox Look closes.

Star’s Channel V will launch the show this month after Fox Look struck a deal with Indian producer Bulldog Media & Entertainment.

The show will launch in India as well as Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, United Arab Emirates, Yemen, Maldives, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and Hong Kong.

This is the first time that the dating format will air in Asia following successful launches in 20 other territories including Ukraine, Greece, Italy, Mexico, Australia and the UK.

The News Corp-owned formats distributor is closing less than a year after it was established. It was created by former Fox Reality boss David Lyle.
