Endemol Shine Group announced that international entertainment format “LEGO Masters” has now been sold to six markets, with the Netherlands and Belgium being the latest territories to pick up the show.

Endemol Shine Netherlands have been commissioned by RTL in the Netherlands and VTM in Belgium to produce a first series of the much-loved show, which sees imaginative building pairs compete to create eye-popping LEGO constructions. Casting for four Dutch and four Flemish pairs is underway and the series will see them compete to win the LEGO Masters title.

Originally created by Tuesdays Child, “LEGO Masters” has aired two successful seasons on Channel 4 in the UK. The format has been also commissioned for a second season in Australia on Channel Nine, where it was a ratings winner, and produced in Germany for RTL last year.

In the US, it was recently announced that actor and producer Will Arnett, who voices “LEGO Batman” in “The LEGO Movie” franchise, will host their version, which is set to air on Fox in February 2020. Further deals for the show are in the pipeline and will soon be announced.

“‘LEGO Masters’ is a wonderful format that puts flair and creativity centre stage and there’s been a terrific response from broadcasters and viewers around the world. This format is pure entertainment which the entire family can enjoy together, and I’m excited to see the fresh twist with Flemish and Dutch pairs competing,” said Lisa Perrin, Endemol Shine Group’s CEO of Creative Networks.

Endemol Shine Group is the exclusive distributor of “LEGO Masters” across all platforms outside of the UK and has the rights to produce local versions of the show around the world. Endemol Shine International is the exclusive distributor of the finished tape of all versions produced.
