Amsterdam-headquartered indie distributor Lineup Industries has acquired the rights to Dutch pubcaster KRO-NCRV’s popular format Long Lost Family (pictured).
The program, which is also known as Find My Family, follows people who reunite with their loved ones after a prolonged period apart.
The format has been popular in a number of territories, including the Netherlands, UK, Ireland, Norway, Hungary, Italy, Denmark and Germany. Lineup will handle all existing licensees for the series, in addition to inking new broadcast deals.
“We were seeking a distributor to boost our ideas on format development and the global presence of our IP,” said KRO-NCRV chief financial officer Yvonne de Haan in a statement. “We were impressed by the focused and tailored approach of Lineup Industries. Their experience will be invaluable in finding the right local partners to roll out Long Lost Family across the globe.”
