CBC, KOTV send factual format to France

Canadian pubcaster the CBC and local prodco KOTV have struck a deal that will see Quebec-set series 14 Thousand Million Things to Know remade in France.

Paris-based prodco R&G Productions will produce a local edition of the 35×15’ series, the original version of which follows host Pierre-Yves Roy-Desmarais as he attempts to compile a list of things viewers should know. No broadcaster is attached to R&G’s remake at present.

CBC’s version of 14 Thousand Million Things to Know airs on its main French-language network Ici Radio-Canada Télé, which is set to air a second season of the show next fall.

Mia Desroches, Radio-Canada’s director of distribution, said: “We’re thrilled about our agreement with R&G Productions to share this original format with the international market.”

KOTV producer Louis-Philippe Drolet added: “The show’s format is a perfect fit for the producer and we’re confident this refreshingly quirky series will enjoy a successful run in France.”
