Two established formats from Mentorn International, Worst Driver and Paradise Hotel, have been ramping up with more international versions on the way. France will be airing its own Worst Driver for the first time on M6 with two episodes of 120-minute duration and one episode of 110 minutes. The format has also been sold to TRK Ukraine which will show eight hour-long episodes in Spring 2011. More territories are in dicussions for the format, in additions to the ones where it is already several seasons deep. Hungary’s Viasat 3 will air Paradise Hotel for the first time in 48 45-minute episodes, while Denmark, Sweden and Norway have each run the format for several seasons.
