FOX Entertainment’s in-house unscripted studio FOX Alternative Entertainment (FAE) has closed major format deals for two series, including the upcoming celebrity competition series Beat My Mini-Mes in Spain and Israel, and performance competition Celebrity Masterpiece in the United Kingdom and France.
FAE has licensed the format of its big studio competition Beat My Mini-Mes to Spain’s Antena 3, also the format has been optioned for development in Israel by ITV Studios’ Armoza Formats. Showcasing a unique and large-scale set, the series features celebrity singers facing off while surrounded by talented children who are all wearing the same outfit as they are, like mini-mes. After multiple rounds of performances, only one child will help their team be crowned the winner. The original format of Beat My Mini-Mes will premiere in France on TF1 later this year (French title: “Dream Team La Relève Des Stars”). Jointly developed by FAE and TF1, “Dream Team La Relève Des Stars” is co-produced by TF1 Production and FAE.
Celebrity Masterpiece has been optioned by ITV Studios’ Multistory Media (“Come Dine with Me,” “Scared of the Dark”) for development in the U.K., while Paris-based production company Satisfaction (“Anything Goes”) has optioned it for France. The format launched earlier this year on Workpoint in Thailand, where the format was titled “The Masterpiece.”
