Endemol pact covers five territories; U.K. and Germany to come
Deal covers Netherlands, Italy, Spain, India and Turkey. Keshet, home of the series that was remade by Showtime as “Homeland,” recently struck deals for the “Deear Neighbors” format with Shine France and Shine Australia, and its in the midst of negotiating pacts for the U.K. and Germany.
Using a docu-style approach, “Dear Neighbors” follows a small-town couple each week who recruit community members to help find a match for their single daughter or son now living in the big city. Pilot for the show racked up big numbers in its airing on Keshet in May. Additional segs are now in production.
