Glow Up Adaptation from Warner Bros. Discovery China


Warner Bros. Discovery China is moving into the Chinese reality space with the commission of Glow Up China, an adaptation of the Warner Bros. International Television Production (WBITVP) format.

The series delves into the world and talents of Chinese make-up artists. It will launch locally on the Tencent Video streaming platform later this month.

Inspired by Chinese influences, cultural elements and local beauty trends, the show will see contestants’ diverse talents judged by industry artists Tony Li and Xinmiao Chen. The series includes several star guests, such as actress Zhao Lusi, singer Jike Junyi, make-up director Xiao Jin and fashion designer Lan Yu.

Based on a Wall to Wall production for the BBC, this marks the seventh international adaptation of the format.

Clark Wang, VP, head of franchise for Greater China and co-lead for production for Greater China and SEA, said: “The Glow Up brand is a worldwide success, and we’re excited to add an international adaptation with unique Chinese flair. Combining our creative and production expertise with successful local partnerships, this series champions homegrown talent and stories that resonate on a local and global scale.”
