All3Media International has signed a key agreement in the U.S. for its globally popular factual entertainment brand Escape to the Chateau, as SVoD service Peacock becomes the exclusive U.S. home for the long-running Dick and Angel Strawbridge-led series as well as brand extension Escape to the Chateau: Make Do & Mend.
New NBCUniversal-owned streaming service Peacock, which has reached 54 million sign-ups since its launch last year, has secured exclusive rights to the new seventh series of Escape to the Chateau, which will premiere in the U.S. on October 1st. This will also mark the start of Peacock’s exclusivity deal in the territory for the Escape to the Chateau brand.
Produced by Two Rivers Media and Chateau Television for the UK’s Channel 4, Escape to the Chateau follows the Strawbridge family’s adventures as they embark on a renovation on the grandest of scales – bringing a derelict 19th century French chateau back to life. Thanks to Dick and Angel’s hard work and dedication, the chateau, with its 45 rooms, a moat, orangery, 12 acres, seven outbuildings and huge potential, shares its secrets and reveals some incredible new discoveries in its journey to becoming the couple’s fairy-tale family home and business.
Spin-off series Escape to the Chateau: Made Do & Mend made its debut in 2020, with the first series filmed during lockdown, and recently returned for a new second series. Filmed by the Strawbridge family on location, the series sees the couple helping families tackle their DIY dilemmas and crafting conundrums, as Dick and Angel share a wealth of expertise, inspiration and bespoke advice.
