TV Land to make ‘My Day’

Network orders hidden-camera series

Continuing its push into original nonscripted skeins, TV Land has ordered a hidden-camera series, “Make My Day,” from producer Michael Davies and Sony Pictures Television.

“Make My Day” revolves around people who are unwittingly put through a series of “weird and wonderful” surprises and coincidences set up by friends and family members. TV Land has ordered six segs of the hourlong series. It’s based on a successful format from British production company Monkey Kingdom that aired on the U.K.’s Channel 4 in 2001-03.

Davies’ Embassy Row banner will produce along with Sony Pictures TV and Monkey Kingdom. Davies will serve as exec producer. “Make My Day” will bow on TV Land’s primetime sked next year.

Davies, known for bringing “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” to U.S. shores, recently launched the syndicated Internet vid series Poptub, with sponsorship from Pepsi. The Poptub vid clips syndicated via YouTube and other Internet distribs feature celeb interviews, comedy bits and other pop culture-centric fare.
