UK producer and distributor ITV Studios (ITVS) has acquired local production rights for the upcoming French duet in eight regions.
ITV did not acquire rights in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Australia and Israel after negotiating the deal with its coordinating distributor, a London-based sales store.
Finnish commercial broadcaster MTV3 has also acquired coordination rights.
In the Netherlands and Flemish-speaking Belgium, Cant Stop Media will work with Vincent TV to develop the show, while in Italy it will work on a local adaptation with Blue Yazmin.
Originally commissioned by TF1 of France and premiered on 26 February on a commercial broadcaster, Mystery Duts teamed up with famous singers for a pair, keeping their identity secret for the performance.
The format was created by DMLSTV and produced behind another French format, The Secret Song, which is also distributed by Cant Stop Media.
Mateo Porte, co-founder of Cant Stop, said, “The way a great channel like MTV3, the producers behind Vincent TV or The Voice behind Blue Yazmin or ITV Studios, decided not to wait to become a film is. Is rarely seen. “
“The world needs entertainment right now and the show is closing,” said Mike Bell, managing director of ITVS Global Creative Network.
JTV Hartikainen, Head of Drama and Development for MTV3, described the mystery couple as “charismatic, passionate and fun – all the elements our fans love”.
