Tough Old Landlords to See Dutch Adaptation

Endemol Shine Group has scored the first international deal for the U.K. factual-entertainment format Tough Old Landlords.

Tough Old Landlords has been picked up by Dutch broadcaster NPO and will be produced by Simpel Media, part of Endemol Shine Netherlands. Originally created by Sharp Jack, the format sees older people opening their homes to become first-time landlords to “generation rent”—the twenty- and thirty-somethings for which rising rents and dodgy accommodation are a fact of life.

Lisa Perrin, CEO of Creative Networks at Endemol Shine Group, said: “Tough Old Landlords brings together great characters from different generations that would never have otherwise met and is packed with funny and warm moments as they navigate life under the same roof. We’re hugely excited the format has already sold to the Netherlands and with discussions underway with broadcasters in the U.K. we hope this news will fast-track the format around the world.”
