Channel 4 Picks Up NBCU’s “Baggage”
We’ve got an extreme rarity for these days…an American format is selling abroad. Channel 4 has picked up a series of the popular NBCU’s popular dating game show Baggage. The series is being produced through NBC Universal’s UK subsidiary Chocolate Media. Channel 4 first ordered a pilot of the Jerry Springer-hosted game in February. The series will run in primetime on 4, so some changes to fit the hour-long game, compared to the current syndicated 30 minute edition, may be coming. A host has not yet been named. Baggage sees three contestants reveal increasingly big baggage from their lives in an attempt to earn a date. Baggage ran on GSN for four seasons and is entering syndication this Fall.
Here’s a recent episode of the show. Excited about seeing it?
