Newen Distribution has closed a format deal on Let’s Keep It Between Us (Ça ne sortira pas d’ici) with German broadcaster WDR.
The show originally created and produced by 17 Juin Media for France 2. The German version is to be produced by Bavaria Entertainment.
In the show, celebrities share information that normally only their general practitioner knows. In addition to the conversation between the TV doctor and his guest, viewers will also get loads of information on health topics, current prevention trends and new medical findings.
The German version will be hosted by TV personality Dr. Eckart von Hirschhausen and launch on January 6, 2020.
Benoît Thevenet, the managing director of 17 Juin, said: “We are extremely proud to hear that our format can be exported and adapted. We have great confidence in Bavaria Entertainment and WDR to showcase the program. We hope that “Let’s Keep It Between Us” will attract other producers and entertain audiences in other countries across the world in the following months because we firmly believe that what we humorously call health-tainment will gather a lot of viewers.” said
Elmar Pott, head of economy, science and consumers at WDR, added: “At the doctor, we are all the same—celebrities are patients too. In our new health program Hirschhausens Prechstunde, the talk between Eckart von Hirschhausen and his prominent guests offers valuable services and information from the world of medicine to the audience.”
