Just ahead of the MIPCOM annual TV flagship show, Electus International has unveiled its programming slate for the coming months.

The block of television programming, which all premiered or had new seasons air this summer, includes original series concepts developed by Electus and its creative partners, as well as successful third-party series that Electus has acquired for international distribution.

"Our new line-up represents our strong commitment to bringing quality programming with a global appeal to the market," said John Pollak, president of Electus International. "We are pleased to bring a diverse slate of titles to MIPCOM this year, many of which have already proven to be massive successes in the US."

The slate includes: quirky game show Separation Anxiety; outdoor celebrity trekking show Running Wild with Bear Grylls; Jane the Virgin, an adaptation of the Venezuelan telenovela; Food Fighters, a high-stakes culinary game show; Fameless from David Spade, a prank show; Home Free, a dream home competition; Dating Naked, which is self-explanatory; Twinning, in which 12 sets of twins will go head to head for a grand prize; Canada's Smartest Person, a game show; and Labor Games, which gives couples already in labour the chance to answer trivia questions in order to win life-changing prizes for their child.
