Distributor DRG has inked eight option deals for Out of the Silence (pictured), a format created and owned by Tuvalu Media and FormatKitchen.

The format follows deaf people who are given a life-changing implant that enables them to hear, often for the first time.

Norway’s Novemberfilm, Sweden’s Titan, Denmark’s Gong, Finland’s Moskito, Ireland’s Loosehorse Television and Australia and New Zealand’s CJZ as well as companies in France and Israel have acquired local remake rights.

DRG acquired the international rights to Out of the Silence at MIPTV following the launch of its global formats division, DRG Formats, in March.
