No More Boys and Girls heads to Spain for Movistar+No More Boys and Girls heads to Spain for Movistar+

Format | Madrid | 30/05/2019

DRG’s social-experiment format No More Boys and Girls is set to be remade for Movistar+ in Spain as Ni Superhéroes Ni Princesas, per a deal with Banijay’s Dlo/Magnolia.

Dlo/Magnolia will produce the five-part series for Movistar+. The show, originally produced by Outline Productions for BBC Two as a two-part miniseries, investigates if creating gender-neutral schools could help close the gender gap in adult life. Using a pioneering approach from Sweden, in the original, Dr. Javid Abdelmoneim takes over a class of 30 kids and creates a gender-neutral school that turns conventions on their head.

The announcement comes on the heels of a deal made with Germany’s Bavaria Entertainment to produce the series for ZDF Neo, with an option granted to Blue Circle in the Netherlands.

Adam Barth, DRG’s commercial director, commented: “We are delighted that No More Boys and Girls is being remade for Movistar+, Spain’s largest and most successful SVOD platform. And in Dlo/Magnolia, the company behind ratings-winning local adaptations of The Secret Life of 4 Year Olds and Supernanny, we have found a production partner that is not only at the top of its game, but one that is also experienced at working with children and really understands the sensitive subject matter at hand.”

Amparo Castellano, director of entertainment at Dlo/Magnolia, added: “No More Boys and Girls is a brilliant factual format that neatly and credibly taps in to, and challenges, the zeitgeist issues around gender and the roles it plays in society. We are thrilled to be bringing DRG’s enlightening and entertaining series to the screen with Movistar+ and cannot wait to see the reaction from Spanish audiences when the series is made available.”
