Acquires format rights following hit ratings for US version on the channel
Red Arrow International and Spiral International have sold the format rights of hit entertainment show Kiss Bang Love to NBCUniversal International Networks Latam to be produced for E! Entertainment Television in Latin America.
From the creators of hit show Married at First Sight, Kiss Bang Love is the provocative dating format that sees single women or men use the power of kissing to find the right partner.
The brand-new series will premiere on 8 November 2017 on E! Entertainment Television throughout all of Latin America, and is hosted by Patricia Zavalas, one of the channel’s most renowned and multi-talented presenters.
Red Arrow International and Spiral International have also licensed the US version of the show to E! for the region. The 10 x 1 hour series is produced by Kinetic Content for FYI in the US, and hosted by Married at First Sight USA relationship and communication expert Rachel DeAlto.
The Kiss Bang Love format has been licensed to over 12 territories including the US, Australia, Denmark and Germany, with ProSieben Germany airing two successful seasons that more than tripled the average share for women 14-29, and a recent summer special.
Spiral International distributes the format and US tape of Kiss Bang Love in Latin America on behalf of Red Arrow International.
Henrik Pabst, Managing Director of Red Arrow International, said: “We are thrilled to see Kiss Bang Love continue to travel extensively around the world. We knew that the US show would prove an absolute success with audiences and are delighted to have found the perfect broadcast partner in E! for the new local production”.
Klaudia Bermudez-Key, SVP and General Manager at NBCUniversal International Networks Latam, said: “We are extremely happy to adapt this very unique and entertaining format for E!. We are certain that viewers in Latin America will truly engage with this program as it is very different from anything else out there, and dating shows have always captivated young millennial audiences – which is our key focus in producing this type of content, and bringing a new generation of audiences to E!”
Kiss Bang Love is created by Snowman Productions Denmark and originally produced by Snowman Productions Denmark for TV3 Denmark and RedSeven Entertainment for ProSieben
