Seven.One Entertainment Renews Germany’s Next Top Model


ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group has signed a multi-season format rights deal with Seven.One Entertainment Group for Germany’s Next Top Model—By Heidi Klum.

The agreement includes five additional seasons of Germany’s Next Top Model, which is produced by Redseven Entertainment and airs on ProSieben. Hosted by Heidi Klum, who also serves as one of the executive producers, it is a German adaptation of the U.S. series America’s Next Top Model.

Germany’s Next Top Model pits aspiring models against one another in a series of challenges inspired by fashion and beauty. Format rights to America’s Next Top Model, as well as rights to the finished U.S. series, are distributed internationally by ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group.

Paul Gilbert, senior VP of formats at ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group, said: “This new multi-season agreement in Germany, which continues the series with Heidi Klum at the helm, is a testament to the strength and quality of this format. Since its debut in 2006, Germany’s Next Top Model has become a channel-defining brand for ProSieben—achieving consistently high ratings amongst an often hard-to-reach demographic—and we’re looking forward to seeing the success story of this fan favorite continue.”
