Termite checks into Fox ‘Hotel’

Deal marks third reality sale for Granada in U.S.

LONDON — ITV company Granada Media has sold reality format “Hotel Getaway” to the U.S market.

American indie Termite Arts Productions has picked up the rights to the show and is making four half-hour episodes , renamed “Hotel Hell,” for Fox.

The premise of the format is to put three couples in a hotel surrounded by staff played by actors and secretly film them.

Termite head Erik Nelson said: “We see this as the prototype for the next generation of reality shows because with hidden cameras we can make sure that the ‘real’ stays in reality.”

“Hotel Getaway” aired on ITV in the U.K. last summer but failed to make a significant impact.

It is, however, the third format Granada has exported to the U.S. in recent months. The other two are “Boot Camp” and “Krypton Factor,” both produced by LMNO Productions for Fox.
