Eccho Rights (fka Sparks Network) has sold its Lady Burlesque format into Ukraine.
Free-to-air broadcaster Inter TV has taken local rights and will make a Ukrainian version of the show. It has already proved popular on Sky Italia channel Sky Uno.
The producers claim that the show empowers women to show off their femininity through the art of burlesque. The series follows women with ordinary lives who go to a burlesque school to learn the details of the performance art and then compete in a studio based elimination show.
Julia Valyaeva from Inter TV says, “We are really excited to be producing Lady Burlesque in Ukraine, this show could bring the Ukraine TV Industry to a new level. It’s a show that celebrates women taking pride in femininity and we believe it has real appeal and hit potential.
