Fugitive shops matchmaker format

Anthony Kimble’s fledgling UK content development and financing outfit Fugitive is moving into distribution with competitive dating format Mom vs Matchmaker.

Mom vs Matchmaker features matchmaker Carmelia Ray

Mom vs Matchmaker sees celebrity matchmaker Carmelia Ray compete with a mother in each episode to see who can find the best date for the mum’s son or daughter.

The show was originally produced by Go Button Media for Canada’s OutTV and is exec produced by its creator, Go Button’s Natasha Ryan.

Fugitive has the sales rights to the 40×30’ episodes that have aired so far and is also pre-selling an additional 10 episodes for the fifth season. It will also represent the format internationally.

Merrily Ross, exec VP of non-scripted content at Fugitive, said: “With big characters and hilarious moments, plus a mix of unlikely matches and fledgling romances, Mom vs Matchmaker is a highly entertaining and stand-out dating show for a broad audience – and makes a great co-viewing programme for parents with older children.

“We are delighted to be working with the talented team at Go Button Media and look forward to representing not only the existing four seasons of this show but also the format, which can be readily adapted for broadcasters worldwide.”

Former Cineflix exec Kimble launched Fugitive a year ago.
