While shiny-floor talent and game formats are tailor-made for global consumption, factual entertainment and docureality/docusoaps don’t tend to travel as well. What are the “culture clashes” between the U.S. and the UK that producers need to be mindful of when their properties get greenlit in a new territory? Can producers keep some semblance of their original show alive when it crosses the pond? Can the American penchant for big characters ever work in the UK? How much noisier does a UK producer have to make a program to have it click in the U.S.? Here, you’ll learn more about what’s working and what’s not in each market, and the reasons why having a big success in your home territory doesn’t guarantee a home run abroad.
