German Broadcasters Seal International Format Deals

Germany’s two largest commercial broadcasters have ordered local versions of three big international formats, with RTL ordering “All Together Now,” and ProSieben moving for “Masters of Dance” and “All Against 1.”

Talent show format “Masters of Dance” (pictured) comes from Israeli broadcaster Keshet. It is distributed by Keshet International, whose German production company Tresor will produce the local version. The format sees thousands of dancers audition to be in a troupe. Under the tutelage of a well-known choreographer, they then go head-to-head with another dance group.

ProSieben has not confirmed scheduling details, but will play the show in its primetime schedule. “’Masters of Dance’ for me is the most exciting dance-format worldwide. It combines big talent with big emotions. I am very happy that ProSieben was able to secure the rights to this show,” said Daniel Rosemann, the broadcaster’s general manager.

The German channel has also greenlit a local version of “All Against 1″ from Banijay. Four live episodes of the show, in which one contestant takes on the public, will run on ProSieben later this year. “With interactivity at its heart, ‘All Against 1’ has been a proven success across Europe and this latest commission highlights the format’s clear global appeal,” said Peter Langenberg, COO, Banijay Group.

The broadcaster’s chief rival, RTL, has also been shopping for international formats. It has picked up “All Together Now.”

Endemol Shine Group distributes the show, in which singers perform in front of an audience of their peers, who can stand up and join in if they rate the performance. The show bowed on BBC One in the U.K. where a second season has been commissioned. Local versions are already in the works for Seven Network in Australia and by RecordTV in Brazil. A French deal will be announced soon.

Lisa Perrin, Endemol Shine Group’s CEO of Creative Networks says: “With five markets signed up in just six months, and others in the pipeline, the show is gaining huge momentum and is fast becoming our next big entertainment hit.”
