Gil Formats’ factual entertainment format, ‘Pregnant and Platonic’, has secured two new deals with production companies in key territories: Talpa Germany and Reservoir Prod in France. The show has already been picked up by ITV Finland and Bulldog TV in Spain.
The UK version of the format is scheduled to air on BBC2 during 2019.
‘Pregnant & Platonic’, 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 in co-parenting. Once they choose a partner to have a child with, the series follows the couples 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.
