Networks in Australia, New Zealand and Norway have picked up the second season of eco-friendly building challenge Kevin McCloud’s Man Made Home (pictured).

The four x 60-minute series is produced by Optomen Television and aired on Channel 4 in the UK.

Distributor Optomen International sold TV rights to ABC Australia and second-window rights in Australia to Foxtel. TV3 snapped up the TV rights for New Zealand and TV Norge picked up TV rights for Norway. Dazzler Media acquired the DVD rights for the UK.

The second season follows host McCloud as he transports the cabin he built in season one to an English beach where he battles the elements, and sources building materials and off-grid energy to build a beach hut from renewable materials.

Producers bill the series as “part how-to show, part design challenge and part commentary on our throw-away society.”
