Australia’s Seven Network has picked up the social experiment formats Kiss Bang Love (pictured) and The Day the Cash Came from distributor Red Arrow International.
Launched at MIPCOM earlier this month, Kiss Bang Love is a reality dating experiment based on research that shows the average person kisses 15 people and has at least two one-night stands before falling in love.
It was created by Denmark’s Snowman Productions (Married at First Sight) and is being produced in Germany by RedSeven Entertainment for ProSieben. Networks in Italy, France, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands and Finland have also acquired the format. Details of those deals will be announced later.
Meanwhile, Red Arrow has licensed The Day the Cash Came to Endemol Shine Australia and Seven Network, as well as to companies in Belgium and the Netherlands.
The social experiment format was originally produced by CPL Productions for the BBC and tests whether or not low-income people can be trusted to make financial decisions by gifting them a year’s salary in one lump sum with no strings attached.
