Metan Development Group licenses Ukrainian series
HONG KONGStar Media Group, Studio Kvartal-95 and Inter TV channel have signed the format sale option for the Ukrainian mass-dance series “Go Dance!” with Metan Development Group in Greater China. The top performing Ukrainian show, where it has run for three seasons, features hundreds of dancers from different cities in a competition to be crowned their country’s Dance Capital. Beijing-based shingle Mei Tian Mei Yu will develop and adapt the format for Mandarin and Cantonese-speaking audiences. It is the first Ukrainian deal of its kind in the region. In the skein, teams of dancers, up to 500 per team, prepare and rehearse their numbers with professional choreographers. They then face off and the winners are chosen. The format has also been sold to MY Tupelo Entertainment in the U.S.
