Media Ranch Unveils New Format Options for European Markets


Media Ranch has secured new format options for the U.K., Sweden, Germany, Norway and the Netherlands.

The Gen Z and millennial dating show format Love Van was optioned in the U.K. by Renegade Pictures. The series follows singles as they find love on a cross-country rally in their livable vans. Partners for this year’s Horsepower edition were TF1, Quebecor Content and La Fabrique des Formats.

The Artist Colony, which features acclaimed visual artists, was picked up by Blazhoffski Productions in the Netherlands and by STV Productions in Sweden and Norway. The original format was created and produced by Eddy Media for DR2. The dating show Match Made in Heaven was picked up in Sweden by Strix Television, and the social experiment 180 Days was picked up by Magis TV (in partnership with Eldorado TV) in Germany.

Sophie Ferron, president and founder of Media Ranch, said: “Media Ranch is thrilled to close our successful year with the option of one of our original Horsepower formats to Renegade in the U.K. and several DR formats optioned in Sweden, Norway, Germany and the Netherlands. The year ahead is looking to be our best yet after boosting our presence exponentially in the U.S. and co-creating original formats with new partners around the world.”

Christian Vorting, founder and producer of Eddy Media, added: “I am very excited that after our two successful seasons, and a third on the way, of The Artist Colony in Denmark on DR2, other countries now also realize the beauty of this amazing and inspiring reality show, which goes at a slower more thoughtful pace than other programs. It is sure to be an audience favorite in Norway, Sweden and the Netherlands.”
