TBI Vision: Fugitive moves into readymade 

UK production and financing company Fugitive is moving into readymade content with a deal to pick up global distribution rights to dating show Mom Vs Matchmaker, produced by Go Button Media for Canada’s OUTtv.

The addition of the existing four seasons of the show (40 x 30-minutes) marks Fugitive’s first major acquisition, while the company is also pre-selling an additional 10 episodes from the show’s fifth season.

The Canadian version of Mom Vs Matchmaker sees celebrity dating expert Carmelia Ray face off against protective mothers in each episode to see who can find the best date for the the mother’s son or daughter.

Merrily Ross, who joined Fugitive last year, said: “With big characters and hilarious moments, plus a mix of unlikely matches and fledgeling romances, Mom Vs Matchmaker is a highly entertaining and standout 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.”
