Newen Distribution is set to serve as the international distributor for TF1’s new competition show My Best Christmas Ever.
The factual-entertainment series, produced by TF1 Production, features four families as they compete against each other to plan the perfect Christmas. The show launched in France on November 27, and TF1 has commissioned a second season for Christmas 2018.
Julien Degroote, the head of non-scripted commissioning and format development at TF1 Group, said, “We are very glad of the launching of My Best Christmas Ever every evening on TF1. A perfect topic to create an event on our grid. This format has been created by our team at TF1 and produced with passion by TF1 Productions, our in-house production company. We are thrilled with the ratings of the first week. It has allowed us to attract a younger audience and to perform very well on commercial targets. The format drives strong emotional stakes for the contestants—every single one of us celebrates Christmas in his own way!”
Malika Abdellaoui, the managing director of Newen Distribution, added, “We are delighted to have struck this partnership with TF1 and to bring this special program to the international market. Christmas is a very particular moment of the year and we believe to be in a unique position to roll the show out worldwide.”
