Zodiak to showcase 10 new formats

MUMBAI: Zodiak Television World (Zodiak) will be arriving at next week‘s television trade event Mipcom with 10 new formats available for international buyers, it was announced today by President, Heather Stevenson.

The entertainment show Sounds of Saturday follows the search for musical artists – local performers of traditional folk and popular music.

24 musical acts are championed by six veteran music artists – through casting, coaching and performing – for the record deal of the dreams. Sounds of Saturday is produced by Dinamo Story and will air on NRK in September 2007.

To Understand and Forgive Zokiak states establishes a new genre in television, the Psychotherapy Docudrama. Whether it’s adultery, blackmail, sentimental issues or rivalry, psychotherapists are always ready to help out as each episode follows a self-contained case offering strong drama portrayed in a unique real life style.

With over 200 episodes aired on Russia’s First Channel, the programme continues to achieve exceptional viewing figures far above the broadcaster’s average.

It will also showcase reality format Wanted: Roommate. It looks to take the traditional house-hunting show to as new level, as each episode follows people renting rooms and people seeking rooms. People both young and old, just starting out their careers as well as seasoned professionals are seeking roommates these days – but do they all find the companionship, variety or surrogate family they are looking for? The 30-minute format premiered early this year on Vox Germany, which has just commissioned 100 additional episodes.

Fight Knight is a sports competition show that let’s men be men as it were. Old scores, office grudges and heated rivalries are settled in a head to head, winner takes all duel, using weapons, armour and strategy inspired by medieval knights, to bring out modern man’s inner warrior.

Each one hour episode sees two sets of contestants training with the “battle master”, picking protective armour and equipment and squaring off in the “ring of fire” to establish who is the winning Fight Knight.
