Fresh off a sale to Discovery of its sex therapy documentary Real 40 Year Old Virgins, British indie Zig Zag Productions has taken options on three new formats for the UK market. First up is Hide & Seek, a Japanese game show that Jack Black’s Electric Dynamite and Japan’s T Group are co-producing in the U.S. With the help of camouflage, set design and special effects experts, a family is hidden inside their own home while a celebrity ‘seeker’ searches for them. If the celeb fails, the family wins a cash prize. Discussions are underway with UK broadcasters. Zig Zag also picked up UK rights to Jockey Stars from Galway’s Abu Media. The reality series follows hopefuls through three months of training to become the next great jockey. The show was voted Best Reality Series at this year’s Irish Film and Television Awards. Finally, the company pacted with Montreal’s Trio Orange for social media dating/manhunt show Wanted.
