KI sold Shame Shuttle to SBS 2 Australia

MUMBAI: Keshet International (KI) has sold the VH1 youth reality show Walk of Shame Shuttle (13 x 30’) to leading Australian free-to-air channel, SBS 2.

Originally commissioned by VH1 US and produced by award winning Brian Graden Media (Hit Record, Todrick and Lance Loves Michael), Walk of Shame Shuttle features hilarious, candid taxicab confessions of late night revelers on their way home “the morning after”. The show’s initial US run was seen by 4.5 million viewers in the US (P2 + Live 7).

SBS 2 channel manager John Beohm said, “Walk of Shame Shuttle hilariously captures the irreverent tone and provocative conversations that SBS 2 looks to inspire. The series is already lighting up social media each Tuesday night demonstrating its popularity with our cross-platform audience, and with the whole series available to binge on SBS On-Demand, we’re giving our audiences the chance to catch this truly unique show on their own terms.”

The deal was brokered by Kelly Wright, Head of Latin America and Executive Advisor Asia Pacific, SBS has previously acquired KI’s archaeological thriller DIG and the multi-award-winning drama Prisoners of War. The Walk of Shame Shuttleservice is the brainchild of undergrad-turned-entrepreneur Kellyann Wargo, who saw a money-making opportunity to provide real-life partygoers with an affordable ride home the morning after. The series sees Wargo or her fellow drivers (Jordan Pease and Michelle Collins) collect and drive revelers home while rigged cameras capture their hilarious stories and exploits from the night’s festivities.
