RTL4 IN THE NETHERLANDS GETS THE MESSAGE
The International Emmy Award-winning hidden camera show ‘Did you get the Message?’ has now been commissioned by RTL4 in the Netherlands for broadcast later this year. The first Dutch series of the successful format will be produced by Skyhigh TV.
After two phenomenally successful seasons in Belgium that saw the ratings of the second series surpass those of the first with an average market share of 36.4% in the 18-44 target ( compared to the average market share of the channel of 24.5% in 2018), VTM has also renewed the program for a third season.
Elsewhere, first series of ‘Did you get the Message?’ are currently in production for VOX in Germany and SIC in Portugal. Both series are set to launch this year. Apart from that 9 production deals have been closed, including US, UK and recently Australia.
The hidden camera comedy, from prolific format creator Shelter, offers a fresh take on the best way to get a message across so there’s no chance of it being forgotten.
In addition to winning various awards, including the prestigious International Emmy award for best Non-Scripted Entertainment program, most recently ‘Did you get the Message?’ was nominated for a Banff World Media Festival Rockie Award and the New York Festivals’ TV & Film Award.
