GRB Entertainment has announced deals for two factual make-over series in Canada — Secret Guide to Fabulous and My First Home; and a family-oriented food competition format to Sweden for Recipe Rehab.
Canada’s Blue Ant Media acquired Secret Guide to Fabulous, from executive producers Kelly Ripa and Mark Conseulos. The series unlocks the mysteries to making life better, from whipping up a last minute gourmet meal to refining personal style, from picking the perfect gift to managing life on social media. Secret Guide provides the code to living a fabulous life.
Game TV in Canada took two seasons of home-buying series My First Home, produced for TLC, which follows first-time homebuyers through the process of purchasing their first property, where “must-haves” and budgets don’t always meet.
Sweden’s Elk Production acquired the format Recipe Rehab, from the creator of The Biggest Loser. In a world of fast food and fast living, two chefs are challenged to remake a family’s favourite meal by transforming their calorie-packed delights into tasty and healthy alternatives. The family then judges each meal based on preparation and flavour.
“GRB is excited to take Recipe Rehab, our new cooking show format, to Sweden where it is sure to be a major hit and help families come together in the kitchen. Additionally, our Canadian partners, Blue Ant Media and Game TV, will find success with exceptional make-over programs My First Home and Secret Guide to Fabulous. GRB continues to evolve in our program offerings and excel in the factual genre,” said GRB Entertainment SVP of International Distribution Michael Lolato.
