Miss Wildcard sees female celebrities enter specialised pageant competitions as a Wild Card contestant. It was developed for Sky1 in Germany. Producer South&Browse became part of the All3Media stable over the summer.

Other shows coming to MIPCOM include Panda Television’s Partners in Rhyme and Wedding Day Winners.

“The expansion of our portfolio via partnerships with format experts such as Hindsight, South&Browse and Panda Television ensures that we can bring a wide variety of the best new ideas to our international clients, and deliver a slate that caters to diverse tastes and scheduling requirements,” said All3 International senior VP of format production Nick Smith.
