Six talented artisans with unique skills seek the perfect apprentice in The Artisan, a “creative, feel-good and inspirational” show, according to Rob Clark, the director of global entertainment at FremantleMedia.
“The original version of the format was developed by our team in France and features artisans who are trying to bring their skills and expertise to new generations in the hope of keeping these niche crafts alive.” Also on offer is The Recording Studio, in which individuals capture the most important song of their lives in a world-class studio. “The Recording Studio is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for its participants and a heartfelt series of positivity for the audience,” says Clark.
There is also Your Song, which looks on as extraordinary people are given a performance from one of their favorite musicians.
“In 2016, we were named the top format seller and distributor in the world—a huge achievement!” Clark says.
