TV Formats Screenings Festival: BBC Studios


Factual entertainment and dating are in the mix in BBC Studios’ lineup in the TV Formats Screenings Festival, including the social experiment Art on the Brain.

Art on the Brain “follows a group of strangers as they try their hands at painting, music, mixed media and photography to learn if the power of creativity can help heal their minds,” says Andre Renaud, senior VP of global format sales.

Dating with My Mates takes the genre to a new level, Renaud says, “by bringing friendship and first dates together in a unique experience.” In Hungry For It, meanwhile, ten cooks eager to break into the food industry vie for a life-changing opportunity. “With modern twists on classic dishes and embracing the power of social media in the food space, it showcases fine dining and street food with tasty results.”
