The first seven x 60-minutes season will air in Africa on BBC Lifestyle; in Asia, the Middle East and France on Nat Geo Adventure; in Australia on The Lifestyle Channel; in New Zealand on TVNZ and Choice TV; and in Thailand on Cineplex. Other networks due to air the series include Belgium’s VRT, Croatia’s HRT, Denmark’s TV2, Israel’s Ananey, Italy’s Sky, The Netherlands’ SBS, Norway’s TV Norge and Sweden’s TV4.

A second, nine x 60-minutes season of the series is currently in production and is due to air in the United Kingdom on pubcaster Channel 4.

“The series focuses on a very timely issue being experienced around the world – space and the lack of it – discovering the unique ways people are maximizing the space they have, and presenting it in an innovative and entertaining format,” said Hat Trick’s director of sales, Sarah Tong, in a statement.

Hat Trick will represent the series at the MIPTV content market in Cannes, France next month, along with other Plum titles James May’s Toy Stories, James May’s Man Lab, One Man & His Campervan and Gok Wan: Made in China.
