Screentime assembles Lego Masters for TVNZ

Lego Masters has been adapted in 14 territories since launching in the UK

TVNZ in New Zealand has ordered a local version of competition reality format Lego Masters, distributed by Banijay Rights.

The state-owned, commercially funded broadcaster has commissioned Banijay Group’s Screentime New Zealand to adapt the format, which aims to find the best Lego builders in a given territory.

It takes the total number of adaptations to 14 since the UK version began in 2017. So far, the show has been remade in territories including the US and Australia, while Spanish broadcaster Atresmedia and Norwegian channel TV2 last month ordered local versions.

The show was created by UK indie Tuesday’s Child Television and The Lego Group, with Banijay handling global distribution.

Philly de Lacey, CEO of Screentime New Zealand, said: “Following the success of Lego Masters in Australia, the US and Europe, we’re so excited for Lego fans in New Zealand to finally have the opportunity to compete in this incredible series.”
