HGTV’s House Hunters heads down under

House Hunters International has aired on US cablenet HGTV for a decade

Long-running HGTV series House Hunters International is to get an Australian version after Discovery granted prodco Leopard USA the rights to pitch the format to broadcasters down under.

House Hunters International has been a staple of the primetime schedule on US cablenet HGTV for the past decade, airing more than 1,800 episodes.

Argonon-owned Leopard USA, the show’s producer, will now pitch the remake rights to Australian channels after securing the first ever format licence deal from US factual giant Discovery.

Discovery took ownership of the format through its 2016 purchase of Scripps Networks Interactive, which brought HGTV into its stable of US cablenets.

The format takes viewers overseas and behind the scenes as individuals, couples and families from around the world decide whether or not a home is meant for them and learn what to look for in international move and what it’s like to live abroad.
