Media Entertainment Group (MEG) is bringing two new formats from U.S. content creators to MIPTV. They include Camping with the In-Laws, created by Clay Newbill at 310 Entertainment (The Mole) and Spike Jones, Jr. at SJ2 Entertainment, and Second Chance Makeover, produced originally as an online vehicle by Gary Gershaw at Classified Creative. The former is a comedy reality series billed as ‘a mix of the soap opera of Wife Swap, with the physical humor of Wipeout, and the angst of Meet the Fockers,’ while the latter sees homeless individuals taken off the streets to have their lives changed all through donations.
