Another ITV company, Shiver, will produce the pilot for the broadcaster.
“The Wishing Tree is a brilliantly simple idea with a wonderful objective at its heart,” said Alexander Gardiner, managing director, Shiver.
“Not only are we tapping into Talpa’s vast portfolio to bring the show to the UK – we’re also enjoying the benefit of their experience producing this unique format for European audiences.”
The original version went out on RTL4 in the Netherlands, launching last May.
Madeleine Knight, director of development and formats, Talpa UK, said: “The Wishing Tree is a simple and inspiring show which gives young children the chance to dream big. We’re really looking forward to working with ITV and Shiver on this heart-warming project.”
