My New Mystery Job Format Sold in Five Markets


Red Arrow Studios International has secured its first raft of deals for the new social-experiment format My New Mystery Job.

The format features participants who are looking for a life change as they resign from their current position and sign up for a brand-new job—without knowing what it is. It has been sold to CPL Productions for the U.K., Redseven Entertainment for Germany, Satisfaction Group for France, Pesci Combattenti for Italy and Monday Productions for Norway.

The show was created by Stepping Stone Productions and is currently in production. The series has been commissioned by NPO3 in The Netherlands (local title: Blind Getekend).

Tim Gerhartz, president and managing director at Red Arrow Studios International, said: “We are delighted to have concluded these initial deals for My New Mystery Job. Research shows that a significant number of people are unhappy in their jobs and are looking to make life-changing career decisions, so the format taps into the zeitgeist perfectly. It’s a truly on-trend concept that is ideal for broadcasters around the world who are looking for the next reality hit to boost and differentiate their schedules.”
