“It is very exciting to be adding FIC’s original formats to our expanding rights portfolio. These shows have done incredibly well for our local channels, frequently delivering outstanding performance records, and we’re thrilled to be offering them to international broadcasters to create equally successful local versions,” said FIC SVP - global head of content sales Prentiss Fraser.

Fox International Channels, under the stewardship of Emmy award-winning executive producer Christian Barcellos, who is now FIC EVP of unscripted entertainment, has been aggressively stepping up its production of unscripted originals in key markets across the world.

“Over the past two years we’ve gone from modest experiments in local original programming to the development of true global franchises that have galvanised ratings and social media buzz in each country. Lucky LadiesSchool for Husbands and F***ing Telemarketers were designed to be customised by each market, and I can’t wait to see how these different interpretations build on the success of the originals.” said Barcellos.
