Distributor Keshet International has struck a deal with Beijing-headquartered Shixi Media that will see six of its factual and entertainment formats produced in the Chinese market.

The Chinese format broker and content provider will create local versions of children’s talent show Master Class, dating show Girlfri3nds, docu-reality series Remember Me, entertainment show Big Ten, second-screen game show 50 Things You Have To Know, and the satirical sketch comedy show What a Wonderful Country.

“Asia-Pacific is now on our radar more then ever. We’re looking to engage with the best creative forces in the region in order to bring our shows to these rapidly-growing markets,” said Keshet’s managing director Alon Shtruzman in a statement.

The company recently brokered an Asian market deal for studio-based reality talent show The Successor (a.k.a. The Next Uri Geller) through distribution partner Red Arrow International, and licensed the shiny floor game show format Sure or Insure to Nordisk Film TV.
