Gogglebox, the Studio Lambert format that watches people watching television, is headed to Israel and Canada through two deals struck just prior to MIPTV.

Israel’s Keshet Broadcasting has picked up the format, as has Canadian broadcast company Bell Media for its Bravo cable net.

While the volume of the Israeli series order hasn’t been announced, the local Canadian version will be a 10 x 30-minute series.

Thomas Howe Associates has licensed the format for Canada. The company also has worked on previous Studio Lambert formats – producing Undercover Boss Canada with eOne and Be the Boss Canada.

Other territories currently developing local versions of the format include Germany, New Zealand, Denmark, Australia, Norway and the Netherlands. The Gogglebox format, currently being shopped by All3Media International at MIPTV, is a realscreen MIPTV Pick.
