France’s Pernel Media plans to push scripted comedy format My Fridge Told Me after selling more episodes to local digital terrestrial channel NT1.
A 30x2mins commission represents a fifth season of the show on TF1-owned free TV channel NT1, and means the programme totals 90 episodes on French television.
Pernel owns the format rights, and company president Samuel Kissous claimed that “it’s such a unique, scripted format that it is perfect for international adaptation”.
The format is shot from the point of view of a fridge that documents everyday life of two flatmates in a shared apartment. In France it is know as Mon Frigo m’a Dit and broadcasts across the schedule, often as lead-in for primetime shows.
