Gil Formats’ factual entertainment format, ‘Pregnant and Platonic’, has secured two new deals with production companies in key territories: Eureka Productions in Australia and AH! In France.  This takes the total number of deals for the format to six, following on from recent deals in the UK, Spain, Sweden and Germany.

The format, co-developed by Gil Formats with US based production company MY Entertainment, centres on men and women who are looking to have a child without getting romantically involved, through the process of co-parenting and is based on Gil Formats’ CEO Assaf Gil’s personal journey to parenthood.

In this format, hopeful co-parents are guided through the process by experts who introduce them to three potential parenting partners, and through a series of tests designed to display their co-parenting compatibility, they get to know each other.  Once they choose a partner to have a child with, the series will follow the couples over the course of a year as they face numerous challenges and difficult decisions before they can turn their dreams of becoming parents into a reality.

Each story will hopefully climax with a baby being born.

The format will be distributed by Gil Formats at MIPTV 2017.
