Life on Duty Format Heads to France


Gil Formats has licensed Life on Duty to the TF1 Group for a French adaptation.

The original series was launched in Israel. Cuatro is to launch the second season of Héroes, más allá del deber, the Spanish adaptation of Life on Duty, today in a prime-time slot. Previous deals on the format include the U.S. with Propagate, the U.K. with Spun Gold and Italy with Bulldog TV.

Life on Duty is an original factual-entertainment format that follows people from several emergency services.

Assaf Gil, CEO of Gil Formats, said: “We are thrilled about this new deal for our fascinating and emotionally engaging format. For us, this is a natural step forward for the format to be taken in France, following its success in Israel and Spain. TF1 is the perfect partner to take our format in the territory, and we are very excited about our new collaboration.”
