Banijay and broadcasters across Europe have optioned the rights to a trio of unscripted formats from Red Arrow Studios International, including Love For The Ages, Old People’s Home For Teenagers and Hold The Front Page.
Relationship format Love For The Ages has been optioned by ZPR Media in Poland and Banijay, in a multi-territory deal covering the Nordics, Portugal, Italy, the Netherlands and France.
The show sees three middle-aged married couples, each at a crossroad in their relationships, attempt to inject some youthful energy back into their lives by swapping their spouses for partners 20 years younger. It was originally produced by Kinetic Content for Tplus in the US, where it will premiere on 15 December.
Social experiment format Old People’s Home For Teenagers has been optioned by Banijay for Spain and by Klima Media for Poland. The series is a spin-off from, Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds, and was originally produced by Endemol Shine Australia for ABC Australia.
Meanwhile, factual entertainment format Hold the Front Page has been optioned by Aller Studios for Finland and Nexiko for Sweden. Originally produced by CPL Productions for Sky Max and NOW in the UK, the format sees two celebrities set off around the country in search of scoops, scandals and surprising stories as they explore the unique and often sensational world of local news. Hold the Front Page will premiere in the UK in 2023.
“As we continue bringing noisy, edgy and unique content to the market, it’s fantastic to have secured new homes with leading broadcasters and partners for some of our latest titles. We’re looking forward to seeing new local partners bring their own versions of our buzzy format Love For The Ages, the compelling social experiment Old People’s Home For Teenagers, and the fun new factual entertainment format Hold The Front Page to viewers around the world,” said Tim Gerhartz, MD at Red Arrow Studios International.
