The hit ITV daytime series has been acquired to be screened in the USA.
US cable network Ovation has acquired Shiver’s home renovation series 60 Minute Makeover from ITV Studios Global Entertainment. The Stateside arts broadcaster has bought a whopping 40 x 60-minute episodes of the long-running ITV daytime series, devised and produced by Shiver.
It’s great news for USA DIY fans as each show combines an entertaining, surprise makeover for someone deserving; together with great takeaway tips for people’s own home improvements.
Shiver shows now play all around the world and can be seen on planes, in hotels and on hundreds of global channels. Through ITV Studios’ Global Entertainment, we also successfully sell a a large amount of our formats to be made by producers in their own global territories. For example, and at the last count, Shiver’s Come Dine With Me is now made in 39 countries!
Both forms of export are brilliant for Shiver in terms of reputation, revenue and reach of audiences.
