Barcroft is making The Outsiders for MTV US. It will follow families with polarising beliefs, from white supremacists to devil worshippers.
MTV also greenlit a local version of Endemol Shine Group’s The Almost Impossible Gameshow (pictured).
The half-hour comedy gameshow has contestants taking on wack, crazy and very difficult challenges in an attempt to win a cash prize. Endemol Shine North America will produce.
UK-based prodco Done & Dusted has also had a US commission, for Wonderland. The weekly show will have new music and comedy. It will be filmed in Los Angles in a ‘living breathing space that has things happening in every room simultaneously.
The new shows were announced yesterday as part of MTV’s upfront presentation to advertisers.
