Fox Alternative Entertainment (FAE) has unveiled two new series created by the company under its International Unscripted Format Fund – celebrity competition Beat My Mini-Mes (working title) for TF1 in France and dating show Marriage Market (working title) for Germany’s ProSieben.

Jointly developed by FAE and TF1, Beat My Mini-Mes is a studio competition series where celebrity singers face off while surrounded by talented children who are all wearing the same outfit as they are, like mini-mes.

After multiple rounds of performances, only one kid will help their team be crowned the winner. Co-produced by TF1 Production and FAE, Beat My Mini-Mes will premiere later this year.

Marriage Market, meanwhile, is a dating reality and a social experiment series that sees parents select their child’s husband or wife in a dedicated market where other parents have decorated booths according to their own kid’s personality.

The parents and newly introduced couple then live all together in a house, where the kids get to know each other under the close watch of their parents. Premiering in the second half of this year on ProSieben and on Joyn, Marriage Market was developed by FAE and ProSieben, which will produce with Cheerio Entertainment.

FAE will distribute both shows.

“We specifically designed this Format Fund to partner with international buyers to identify, develop and introduce new programs that expand FAE’s slate of owned content and, in success, serve as a platform for future success on FOX in the U.S.,” said Allison Wallach, president of unscripted programming for Fox Entertainment.

“In Beat My Mini-Mes and TF1, and Marriage Market and ProSieben, we have the perfect combination of what we’re striving for with this initiative — unique formats with unlimited potential on a global scale and great partners with an impressive track record of innovation.”
