Media Ranch picks up DR formats

Hypnotize My Heart features psychological manipulator Jan Hellesøe

Canadian producer and distributor Media Ranch will represent a slate of formats from Danish pubcaster DR at MipTV in Cannes next month.

Formats added to the Media Ranch catalogue ahead of MipTV include The Manipulator, which follows psychological manipulator Jan Hellesøe as he leads mind-boggling experiments on participants. The show launched on DR towards the end of 2018 and has been greenlit for a second season.

Hellesøe also returns for DR format Hypnotize My Heart, which sees the hypnotherapist run fun experiments to help young people improve their dating lives.

Media Ranch will also represent hit talent show Design Star, produced by Monday Media for DR1, in which five designers battle it out to make the best new piece of designer furniture.

Other highlights from Media Ranch’s MipTV 2019 formats catalogue include Project Rembrandt, a feel-good broad-based talent show from NPO1 in the Netherlands that searches for a country’s best amateur painter.

Masterpiece follows a team of leading experts take up the challenge to reconstruct eight of the most diverse Dutch ‘masterpiece’ paintings. The original show is produced by PosVideo for Dutch broadcaster NPO2.

Scripted dramady Line Up, which airs on Canadian network Unis, is also available for adaptation along with Swiss reality show In The Car, where five people must live in a small car for 10 days with the one who lasts the longest winning the vehicle.
