Target Entertainment has sold a raft of factual entertainment formats to Spain, UK, Sweden and Austria.

Spain’s Telecinco has acquired Rain Media’s Restaurant in Our Living Room (pictured), following its successful debut on TMC in France earlier this year. The series, which sees culinary couples battling to open a restaurant in their own homes, was first broadcast on Virgin 1 in the UK.

Other sales include a third series of Lighthearted Entertainment’s Next! commissioned by Antena Neox in Spain.  The 60 Spanish episodes will be locally produced by Zebra Producciones.

Tool Academy returns to British television this fall, with Objective Productions producing a second series for E4. Target has also sold the format rights to Viasat in Sweden, which will produce a local Swedish version.

Lastly, Popstars is to be produced in Austria for the first time by Tresor for Puls 4 and Virgin 1′s Why Men Watch Porn is being reversioned for Israel’s Reshet as a two-parter.
