MIPCOM news1

Beyond the success of Spanish fiction, the launch of a dozen entertainment formats at MIPCOM point towards a positive future for this kind of content which, in many cases, is conceived with an eye to international sales, in many cases without relying on possible local productions.

MIPCOM is the market place in which the buzz will be about  "Love is in the Group", a group dating show from Phileas Productions . Besides, the Andalusian format factory, Its.OK, ventures forth with a delirious factual contest “Food Go”, in which cookery is the excuse for adventures and physical challenges, at times under the most extreme circumstances. Cooking programs are a global trend and a new docureality format version comes from Factoria Plural whose “Mother Chef” intends to offer another angle by featuring renowned chefs with Michelin Stars.

New features include formats that have been previously produced and are ready to be broadcast, such as “Recording The World ... Cooking With Julius”, a documentary series from Prointel in which the renowned chef Julius Bienert accompanies a film crew through the Southeast Asia in search of new flavors and traditional dishes with which to enrich his cuisine.  A similar case is presented by Factoria Plural for whom running is a worldwide phenomenon as they prove in the “Born to Run” Docureality/Coaching program. Veralia’s “The Red Seat” is another format offered in two versions.  In this case it is a talent format based on the red seat mechanism and has been produced and broadcast by Canal Sur (Spain) with remarkable success.  Two novel and different concepts round off the lineup:  Grupo Secuoya adds “La Vega” format to its portfolio. This is a reality show being produced in Chile and seeks to turn reality TV upside down. In it, a group of boys learns to make a living. Meanwhile, Prisa Video, in their first foray into the international market, presents “The History Warriors” a completely original docutainment whose concept combines the travel genre with heritage protection through the eyes three presenters with diverse and complementary profiles: a reporter, a film director and a paleontologist. This program, as all of the above, will also be available as a format for international adaptation.
