FremantleMedia Australia has picked up the format rights to new studio entertainment show Pants on Fire.
Originally produced for NPO3 in the Netherlands, the show pits two teams against each other in trying to convince a celebrity jury they are telling the truth with their stories.
As yet no network has been confirmed for the show.
“In a market that is firmly focused on upbeat, optimistic and fun family entertainment at a good price point, Pants on Fire was a no-brainer,” said Caroline Spencer, director of development at Fremantle Media Australia. “Mix in the whole fake news caper and it’ll be a winning format down under.”
“We’re extremely proud to be working with FMA and are confident they will find the ideal broadcaster to bring this fun, innovative and original show to the Australian audience,” said Sophie Eap, international sales manager at Newen Distribution.
