ABC’s format offering for 2021 includes premier scripted formats including Aftertaste (from the award-winning Closer Productions) and Itch (from Komixx Entertainment, makers of the Netflix smash The Kissing Booth). From the ABC stable, exciting new programs include The Wonder Gang, Mikki vs The World and the EXPOSED series.

With Season 6 about to air in Australia, You Can’t Ask That continues its winning trajectory overseas – with over 30 seasons delivered across 11 international productions, and current options in 7 additional territories. Delivering later in 2021 in the UK, the BBC has commissioned Keshet Productions to deliver an aged-down version of the award-winning competition format, The Great Bee Challenge delightfully re-named Show Me The Honey, for their children’s channel CBBC.

Recently nominated in the 2021 International Format Awards (in the Best Host of a Format category), Fight For Planet A: Our Climate Challenge is one of the freshest and most readily adaptable new factual entertainment properties on the market. Recently optioned in Spain, Fight for Planet A follows five diverse and competing households, and takes a positive approach to reducing our carbon footprint and helping to protect our planet for future generations.
