Montreal-based prodco and format developer Media Ranch has sold its True Sex Confessions to Quebec lifestyle and entertainment channel Moi & Cie.

The 26 x 30-minute series features three people per episode revealing their most intimate and exciting sexual encounters, retold through their own testimony and through dramatic reconstructions.

The episode’s themes cover a wide range of topics regarding sexuality, with the program also addressing misconceptions regarding sex using “fun facts” and statistics.

“True Sex Confessions is our latest original format and one we think is a perfect fit for Moi&Cie’s passionate female audience. A lighthearted blend of personal testimony and dramatic reconstruction combines to retell some extraordinarily exciting stories that prove that fact is really more compelling than fiction – particularly when it comes to sex! ” said Sophie Ferron, president of Media Ranch, in a statement.

The news follows recent Media Ranch activity that includes the producer’s acquisition of the Quebec format Rights for The Apprentice and plans to produce a local version of the Studio Lambert format Life in the Kitchen for Canada.
