Endemol Shine Group gets Younger in China Global content creator, producer and distributor Endemol Shine Group is pleased to announce that it has landed a deal for hit drama series Younger in China.

The deal will see Endemol Shine China partner with Huace Group to create a 40x45’ local Mandarin language adaptation of the hit show, which follows the story of a woman who lies about her age at her job in the highly competitive world of publishing. As her personal and professional lives become irreversibly intertwined, keeping the secret proves more and more difficult. The Chinese version will be based on five series of the original US show, created by ‘Sex and the City’ creator Darren Star.

Produced by TV Land, Younger is written and executive produced by entertainment icon Darren Star and stars two-time Tony® Awards winner Sutton Foster, Hilary Duff, Debi Mazar, Miriam Shor, Nico Tortorella, Peter Hermann, Molly Bernard and Charles Michael Davis.

William Tan, Managing Director of Endemol Shine China says, “Huace Group is the ideal partner for us to re-create this light-hearted series with and we can’t wait to bring to viewers what we believe could be China’s latest comedy hit. Younger is a fantastic addition to Endemol Shine China’s localised scripted slate, which includes Humans and Broadchurch, and we are proud to provide high-quality content and talent which sets up the bridge between our two different cultures.”

Cecilia Zhu, VP of International Business, Huace Group says,“This is a co-operation between two top global industry players where high-profile talent will work closely together to create a fun representation of the professional and personal lives of young people in China, reflecting their views and the realities of modern life. We look forward to creating a classic series via this co-operation.”

This is the second format adaption for Younger in Asia, with Endemol Shine Group bringing the show to Korea in a deal with JTBC Content Hub, announced in December last year. It follows the news that Endemol Shine China is also adapting hit UK series Humans, from Kudos TV and AMC, with Croton Media and Matador, as well as partnering with Blue&White&Red Pictures and Cloudwood to produce critically aclaimed Broadchurch, originally created and written by Chris Chibnall and produced by Kudos TV and Sister Pictures in association with Imaginary Friends. Endemol Shine China also involves in local non-scripted hits including The Nation’s Greatest Treasures and Puzzle Masters.
