Amsterdam-based distributor Lineup Industries has inked deals for two formats with newly launched producer Critical Content.

The deal covers U.S. options for Radio Gaga (pictured), the next vehicle for Catfish’s Nev Schulman and Max Joseph, and the hidden camera show What The..?!

Radio Gaga follows the two hosts as they travel across the U.S. in a mobile radio studio and set up in small communities where they spend 48 hours running a radio station for the locals.

Originally produced for Dutch network NPO 1 by David & Co., What The..?! is a hidden camera series in which members of the public undergo training to master an out-of-character skill in preparation for a stunt that reveals the skill to their friends and family.

Former Relativity Television execs Tom Forman and Andrew Marcus launched Critical Content last fall in the wake of parent Relativity Media’s bankruptcy filing and subsequent restructuring.
