Twofour’s This Time Next Year named Best Factual Entertainment Format
Twofour Rights has begun MipTV with This Time Next Year taking the Best Factual Entertainment Format prize at the C21 International Format Awards. This much appreciated recognition from the leading awards for the global content business continues the phenomenal success story of the fastest selling new format of the past year.
This Time Next Year is the very first format in Twofourâ€™s own innovative Television Time Travel genre. The unique primetime studio entertainment series found a strong audience in its UK debut last year and has, to date, been acquired by 14 territories. Showcasing an array of incredible real life transformations, the reveal to the audience is almost instant, as contributors leave through the â€˜this timeâ€™ door and re-appear moments later through the â€˜next yearâ€™ door. Many and varied challenges deliver engaging and warm television, as the audience wills on and supports each individual in the pursuit of their remarkable goal.
Hot on the heels of This Time Next Year, comes the next wave of Television Time Travel formats from Twofour in The Home Game and Give It A Year. Both of these deliver the instant gratification that This Time Next Year does, taking viewers from promise to result in an instant and this time in the worlds of home improvement and business respectively. All retain the common thread of humour, emotion and life-changing jeopardy that is so captivating.
