Media Ranch Scores Six Format Options


Media Ranch has lined up six option deals, including for the singing game format Round Table.

This year, Media Ranch began representing two Korean formats from DiTurn, led by The Masked Singer creator Wonwoo Park. The first format optioned from the partnership is Round Table, for both celebrity and non-celebrity versions. The format has been optioned in Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands by Fremantle and in Germany by Tower Productions.

Two Media Ranch original formats were optioned in the U.S. DIGA Studios picked up Blend & Build, created by Amélie Tintin while part of Media Ranch’s Horsepower format incubator. Blend & Build is a new renovation program with houses built for blended families. Culture House optioned Hang Sesh by TV star Tristan D. Lalla, about a group of young Black men trying to tap into their inner “Martha Stewart” to elevate each other and learn necessary life skills.

Sophie Ferron, founder and CEO of Media Ranch, said: “We are very excited with how quickly Round Table is taking off. We are working closely with creator Wonwoo Park and his stellar team. Any time a Media Ranch original Canadian IP is optioned, it is a testament to the incredible talent of our roster of creators. Homegrown Horsepower format, Blend & Build as well as Hang Sesh are set up with great partners and both shows have a lot to say. We expect more news with these formats imminently.”

Park, creator of Round Table and president of DiTurn, said, “We are thankful to our partner, Media Ranch for sharing our fun Korean hit, Round Table with great European partners and look forward to seeing the show on air in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and Italy and soon in other parts of the world.”
