Content distributor Media Entertainment Group, or MEG, has announced its first representation deal for its new formats division. The company has acquired Miss Lingerie Model, produced by New Zealand’s Comedia Productions, and the show has been optioned by Canadian format producers Trio Orange for French Canada. The program, an original idea from Comedia and Hi Five Productions, is a primetime entertainment/reality format in which contestants (‘regular girls,’ according to company PR) compete by modeling lingerie for prizes. In other MEG news, the company has hired on two new sales agents to work with MEG Formats VP Sarah Coursey: Barbara Kalicinska and Barbara Vallant.
