Warner Bros. Discovery has confirmed a deal with France’s M6 Formats to produce an Italian version of the French makeover show Incroyables transformations (Incredible Transformations), marking the format’s first international adaptation.
Created by the M6 Group’s production unit Studio 89 (France’s Top Chef) and having premiered in France in 2019, the series focuses on an aesthetic agency staffed by hair, makeup and fashion experts who provide a style overhaul for clients and their loved ones.
The Italian edition of the format will be shot in Rome by the local division of international media group Casta Diva. The series will air on the WBD-owned channel Real Time, debuting on May 16.
“After more than 300 episodes broadcast in France, this is the first foreign adaptation of a powerful format which has shown its strength on M6′s Access for several seasons, and corresponds very well to Real Time’s DNA,” commented Dimitri Gélineau, international sales manager for M6 Formats, in a news release announcing the deal.
Other formats in the M6 Formats portfolio include the talent competition series Audition Secrète, La Meilleure Danse and Ice Show, as well as factual formats such as the real estate competition series Chasseurs d’Appart’, which has thus far been adapted in five countries.
