Nordic World has closed several format deals in the German market for Family Dinner (pictured) and 100 Days of Being Nice.

The sales arm of TV2 Norway and TV4 Sweden sold the Absolutely Independent catalog title Family Dinner to broadcaster RTL, which has ordered a pilot for the 50-minute primetime reality show. The series, originally produced in the Netherlands by Sky High, aims to reunite warring family members over a gourmet meal.

Disney Germany picked up Nordic World’s 100 Days of Being Nice, a cross-platform show in which a celebrity host attempts to teach politeness to viewers through a series of events, public appearances and street campaigns. It was created by Denmark’s Gong.

The six-episode German version will be produced by FremantleMedia-owned UFA Show & Factual.
