Mediaset España to adapt Fremantle’s The Farm and Warner’s The Bachelorette

The Farm format was created by Strix Television

Spanish broadcaster Mediaset has announced two agreements to adapt classic unscripted formats The Farm and The Bachelorette.

The Farm was acquired from Fremantle, which will produce the local version together with Mediaset España. The reality show requires its protagonists, either members of the public or celebrities, to collaborate to get ahead in a rural farm environment without modern comforts.

Created in Sweden in 2001, The Farm has so far been adapted in 30 countries, including Norway (24 seasons), Sweden (17 seasons), Brazil (14 seasons), France, Italy, Greece and Hungary.

The Bachelorette is a follow-up to original US format The Bachelor, distributed by Warner Bros Television Studios. The Spanish version will be produced with Warner Bros International TV Productions Spain.

The dating show centres on a woman who has achieved practically everything in life, except finding love. The programme will follow her meeting a group of suitors through dates and encounters that will also serve to single out the ideal candidate.

The Bachelor is one of the most successful US franchises, with more than 180 editions and over 2,258 hours broadcast in 38 countries, both in its original version and its sequels.

Mediaset España, the Spanish division of Italian media conglomerate MediaForEurope, operates channels including the generalist free-to-air TV channels Telecinco and Cuatro.
