Munich, April 26, 2012. Can He keep Her promise? The Brits are about to find out, as ITV1 has commissioned SevenOne International’s format “My Man Can” produced by the UK’s largest commercial production company ITV Studios. Hosted by Mark Wright and Melanie Sykes, the 75-minute episodes will launch prime time in 2013.
Melanie Sykes said “My Man Can is a brilliant game because us girls always think we know what our blokes can do – but can they pull it out of the bag when it counts?”
Mark Wright said “Us fellas always try to impress our ladies but will we be able to come up with the goods when it really matters?”
ITV’s Director of Comedy and Entertainment Elaine Bedell said “My Man Can has been a hit elsewhere in Europe, and we’re looking forward to putting a uniquely British spin on it.”
Henrik Pabst Regional Sales Director at SevenOne International said: “With a proven international track record, “My Man Can” is the only game show where women wear the trousers and put their better halves to the test. Let’s see if the Brits have what it takes.”
Creative Director for ITV Studios, Lee Connolly said “This show combines great stunts and challenges and really tests how much each partner knows about the other. It will be a lot of fun.”
