Media Ranch's format, "Things My Dad Failed To Teach Me" has been acquired for production. The project is set to launch on TVN/Discovery Group Channel's TTV Poland. “Media Ranch is thrilled about the production deal with TTV Poland that PRO5 Media’s Malgorzata Gudel, our Warsaw representative, closed for The Things My Dad Failed to Teach Me – a fun, heart-warming program," Sophie Ferron, President and Founder of the company, said. "This is an orginal Danish (TV 2) program that nearly doubled TV 2’s share last Fall, and we expect Polish audiences to embrace it well.”
With its nine 45-minute episodes currently undergoing production, a premier date for "Things My Dad Failed To Teach Me" will likely be set for the fall time. The show became popular in Denmark where it was originally produced last year for TV 2. In Norway, the format was acquired and will soon be produced by a soon to be announced broadcaster, and is also in development in The Netherlands. “We are happy to be in production with 'The Things My Dad Failed to Teach Me' as it shares matters and values important for our audience. This is a wonderful entertaining family program which we hope to be as big a hit in Poland as it was in Denmark," Lidia Kazan, Programming Director of TTV channel said.
The format tells the story of a celebrity who leaves the big city to return to his childhood home to visit with his dad to learn skills that some of today’s younger generation generally lack, such as building, repairing household appliances or furniture, cooking, hunting, harvesting, construction, carving, car repair, electrical work, among other tasks. Created by the Danish production company Laud People for TV 2 Denmark, the show is in production for its second season.
“We at Laud People are excited that our format now is travelling the world with great help from Media Ranch," Lau Rabjerg-Eriksen, CEO of Laud People said. "It is truly a special, family-bonding project, with a premise that has such widespread appeal. We are confident that viewers in other countries will embrace the format too.”
