Million Dollar Baby has been co-commissioned for MTV International and MTV UK by Craig Orr, VP of commissioning and development for MTV International, and Kerry Taylor, EVP of youth and music at Viacom International Media Networks, MTV UKNEE.

True North’s Fiona O’Sullivan, head of factual entertainment and reality, will executive produce.
