Greek broadcaster Antenna has acquired The Wishing Tree (pictured) from ITV-owned Talpa Media.

The deal marks the second international sale for the format after it was picked up by Belgian free-to-air broadcaster VTM in October.

The Dutch series centers on young children who hang wishes for someone in need on a “wishing tree.”

The format, which launched at October’s MIPCOM market, was recently renewed for a second season in the Netherlands.
