The content will be shopped internationally under the brand NRK Formats, and has been created and produced in-house by NRK. Titles include the pop trivia and challenges show Battlepop (called Popstokk locally), social experiment format Teenage Boss, fact ent format Never Ever Do This at Home and an eyebrow-raising sex-ed format dubbed Threesome (or Trekant locally).
