Digital Studio - - NEWS UPDATE -

In­de­pen­dent dis­trib­u­tor Hat Trick In­ter­na­tional has signed a new for­mat deal for in­ter­na­tional com­edy show Whose Line is it Any­way?, to be adapted for the Mid­dle East, rep­re­sent­ing the first ever ver­sion to be pro­duced in the Ara­bic lan­guage.

Com­mis­sioned by TeN TV from Cairo-based Global Pro­duc­tions, the new lo­cal adap­ta­tion will to­tal 14 episodes. The se­ries is now in pro­duc­tion and Whose Line is it Any­way? is ex­pected to de­but in De­cem­ber this year to au­di­ences across Ara­bic-speak­ing Mid­dle East as part of TeN TV’s prime­time sched­ule. This lat­est deal adds to the other 13 in­ter­na­tional adap­ta­tions for Whose Line is it Any­way? in­clud­ing Aus­tralia (Fox­tel), Fin­land (MTV3), Hol­land (BNN-Vara) and Viet­nam (Dong Tay Pro­mo­tion).

Com­ment­ing on the deal, Sarah Tong, Di­rec­tor of Sales at Hat Trick In­ter­na­tional, com­mented: “Whose Line is it Any­way? of­fers a fan­tas­ti­cally adapt­able for­mat that gives lo­cal broad­cast­ers the op­por­tu­nity to pro­duce an en­ter­tain­ing, top­i­cal and hi­lar­i­ous prime­time show fea­tur­ing the best com­edy tal­ent from their own re­gion. I am de­lighted to con­firm this new land­mark deal in the Mid­dle East, which per­fectly demon­strates the con­tin­ued wide ap­peal of this ever­green favourite, whether as a for­mat or as fin­ished con­tent.”
