The prodco behind Undercover Boss will be producing Spun Gold’s UK-created formats in the U.S., as part of a production partnership deal.

Spun Gold produces a number of unscripted series and formats for UK broadcasters including the BBC, Sky Living and ITV, such as the recent Junk Food Mums, and celebrity-based programming such as Claire Richards: Slave to Food. The prodco is headed by CEO Nick Bullen.

Studio Lambert has had a presence in the U.S. since it launched its American office three years ago with Project Runway creator and former Miramax Television head Eli Holzman serving as president of Studio Lambert USA. The American division is also behind The Pitch for AMC and the recently announced Diamond Divers for Spike.

“We are committed to bringing some of the most successful and daring formats in the U.K. to the States,” said Studio Lambert CEO Stephen Lambert.

Spun Gold’s Bullen added: “We have a lot of new formats in the pipeline and teaming up with Stephen and Eli seems like a smart way to fast-track these ideas on to U.S. television.  I’ve been hugely impressed by Studio Lambert’s phenomenal growth in the last three years.”

Studio Lambert also has similar arrangements with two other U.K.-based indie prodcos, Betty and Nutopia.
