British producer ITV Studios has received commissions to produce German versions of the formats May The Best House Win and Coach Trip (pictured).

ITV Studios Germany will produce a local version of lifestyle game show May The Best House Win (20 x 33-minutes) for commercial channel Kabel Eins. It will begin airing weekly on August 19 under the title Mein Zuhause, Dein Zuhause РWer wohnt am sch̦nsten.

The show features homeowners showing off their homes to contestants who rate interior design, homeliness, comfort and hospitality.

In addition, RTL has commissioned a celebrity version of Coach Trip (6 x 60-minutes) that will be hosted by German drag queen Olivia Jones. The series will air later this year under the title Der VIP Bus – Promis auf Pauschalreise.

In the British version of the series – which airs on Channel 4 – seven strangers spend six weeks traveling across Europe together and vote off their least favorite fellow travelers.

ITV Studios also produces German versions of formats The Chase for NDR and Four Weddings and Come Dine With Me for Vox.
