UK, France pick up Space Invaders.

WTFN decluttering series gets Euro broadcasters on board, including some with format rights.

Returning Nine series Space Invaders has been acquired by UK and French broadcasters.

Channel 4-owned More4 in the UK and 6ter, a Groupe M6 FTA channel in France, have picked up two seasons (20 x 60) of the show.

In addition, new production company Bloom Media House, whose CEO is former Masterchef Italia EP Marco Chiappa, has just optioned the format rights to develop the series in Italy. This follows earlier news about European format options in Germany, France, and Finland.

Produced by Fred Media’s parent company WTFN, Space Invaders sees Peter Walsh, Cherie Barber and Lucas Callaghan help Aussies declutter their lives.

Karen Connell, Fred Media’s senior sales manager for UK & Western Europe, said, “We are thrilled that Space Invaders is proving to be so popular and are excited that the second season gives even more opportunity to broadcasters looking to establish new programme brands for their audiences. With their existing commitment to property and renovation shows, both More4 and 6ter are ideal partners for the series. Moreover, the fact that this programme uses a mix of smart advice and sensitivity to transform not just the homes but also the lives of its participants, it will quickly resonate with any viewer currently frustrated with the space they live in, especially if they have been recently encouraged to work from home.”

Season two is due to premiere on Nine on Saturday 19th February.
