Euro networks to spend Five Days Inside
Five Days Inside looks beyond the doors of secretive institutions
Broadcasters in the Netherlands and Belgium have become the first to line up remakes of a primetime format from Norwegian public broadcaster NRK.
Five Days Inside follows a journalist who discovers what it is like to live and work behind the closed doors of institutions such as a drug rehab unit, a hospice for the terminally ill and an eating disorder clinic.
Dutch indie Vincent TV Producties has produced a 6×60′ version for RTL4, which is set to air this month, while Belgian prodco Lecter Media is producing a 6×60′ seriers for an as-yet undisclosed broadcaster.
The NRK-produced original, sold by UK-based distribution and rights management outfit Magnify Media, has been a hit for the Norwegian broadcast which recently commissioned a second season.
Ole Hedemann, head of formats at NRK, said the show “stands out in our schedule as something unique and heart-warming, despite the seriousness of the topics.”
Magnify has previously sold NRK gameshow format Doctors vs Internet, which was licensed by TV2 in Denmark.
