LEGO Masters Sells into Two New Markets


Endemol Shine Group has added two new markets to the roster for its entertainment format LEGO Masters, which has now sold into six countries.

Endemol Shine Netherlands has been commissioned by RTL in the Netherlands and VTM in Belgium to produce local versions of show, which sees imaginative building pairs compete to create eye-popping LEGO constructions. Casting for four Dutch and four Flemish pairs is underway, and the series will see them compete to win the LEGO Masters title.

Originally created by Tuesdays Child, LEGO Masters has aired two seasons on Channel 4 in the U.K., has been commissioned for a second season in Australia on Channel Nine and was produced in Germany for RTL last year. A U.S. treatment is set to air on FOX in February 2020.

Lisa Perrin, Endemol Shine Group’s CEO of creative networks, said: “LEGO Masters is a wonderful format that puts flair and creativity center stage and there’s been a terrific response from broadcasters and viewers around the world. This format is pure entertainment which the entire family can enjoy together, and I’m excited to see the fresh twist with Flemish and Dutch pairs competing.”
