New York-based prodco MY Entertainment has inked a new partnership with SBS Broadcasting in South Korea and Critical Density Media to develop The Power for global audiences.
The new social experiment format focuses on society’s relationship with money, class, social status and power. The Power examines how people – regardless of wealth or background – behave when given absolute power to make decisions for those around them.
The Power is slated to air in Korea in early 2018, and MY Entertainment has teamed up with the Korean broadcaster to further develop the format for the U.S. and western markets.
The format recently won a Gold Remi award at the Houston International Film Festival and has been nominated for a Rockie award at the Banff World Media Festival.
MY Entertainment’s other copros include the series, Help! My House Is Haunted with back2back Productions and Ghost Adventures’ Zak Bagans for UKTV.
A pilot has recently been created in the Netherlands for Hall Pass, the project of a partnership between MY Entertainment, London-based The Story Lab and Spain’s Phileas Productions. Working with Israel’s Gil Formats, MY Entertainment co-developed the co-parenting format Pregnant and Platonic which has now been optioned in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Australia, Spain, Finland and Sweden.
