Lion TV, part of leading U.K. indie All3Media Intl., has struck a raft of deals for its formats.
Entertainment gameshow “Cash Cab,” which is shot in the back of a taxi, has been commissioned by BNN in the Netherlands, Kabel 1 in Germany and TNT in Russia. In the U.K., ITV has commissioned a further series. Forty episodes are in production for Discovery in the U.S. and options have been inked in another 22 territories.
Options for factual entertainment format “Family Trip” have been agreed in Belgium (D&D TV & Film Prods.) and France (R&G Prods.), while the U.K.’s BBC has commissioned a pilot.
The “I Want My Mummy” format, which sees dads try their hand at looking after the kids all day, also has proved a winner for All3Media. Italy’s Endemol has signed an option and ITV has commissioned a second series.
Fremantle in France has extended its option for “Parent Trap,” a show where out-of-touch parents are forced to spend all their time with their children.
