Canadian producer and distributor Media Ranch has unveiled its line-up of original TV formats and finished series for Mipcom.

The company will be in Cannes shopping classic Canuck blind-dating show Thunderstruck, known in French Canada as Coup de Foudre.

The programme was recently remade for V Media Group’s V channel in Québec after a 100×30’ order was placed.

René Ferron of Ferron International originally conceived the format and now his daughter, Media Ranch president Sophie Ferron, will sell it outside of Canada for the first time along with both the original and finished programmes.

Media Ranch will also be offering the format and finished French rights to TVA show Double Occupancy, and retains the rights to remake the show in English-speaking Canada.

Meanwhile, the company will be selling the format and finished French-language series of cooking format Tipsy Recipes (20×30’), which has run for two seasons in French on V Channel as Les Recette Pompettes.

True Sex Confessions will also be available to buyers as a format or finished French-language series. The show aired on French-language channel MOI&Cie as Vraies Histoires de Sexe.

As previously announced, Media Ranch will be launching a scripted comedy series featuring flamboyant 1980s glam rockers Steel Panther and is holding an exclusive VIP launch party event at Morrison’s bar in Cannes on Monday October 17.
