BROADCAST: Magnify sells Super Dog format
Belgian broadcaster RTBF is to air its own version of Plimsoll Productions’ Rescue to Super Dog after picking up the format rights. The deal, secured by distributor Magnify Media, marks the first format licence for the show, initially commissioned as a 3 x 60-minute series for Channel 4. It will be made in-house at the French-language public service broadcaster.
Option rights for the format have also been snapped up in Norway (Monster Entertainment), France (Endemol Shine) and Australia (Blink TV). Plimsoll is working on an 8 x 60 minute US version for Animal Planet and the show has been sold as a finished programme to Japan, Iran, New Zealand, Italy, Denmark and Germany.
