German broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1 has picked up the remake rights to the Danish format Married at First Sight, with Red Seven Entertainment set to produce a local version.

An as-yet-unnamed partner in France has also acquired the program from Red Arrow International, the company claimed, in a straight-to-series deal.

Created by Red Arrow’s Snowman Productions, the format sees six single people taking the risk of marrying a stranger, and follows the outcome of their decision six weeks later. It previously aired on Denmark’s DR3.

“Talk of the town at MIPCOM and a game changer for Denmark’s DR3, Married at First Sight is the must-have reality show,” said Henrik Pabst, senior VP of global format acquisitions at Red Arrow International. “And now ProSiebenSat.1 has secured a straight-to-series order for Europe’s biggest television market – and looking at the ongoing negotiations around the world, Married at First Sight does propel the dating genre to another level.”
