Media Ranch’s Judge For One Day gets Belgian remake
RTL Belgium has ordered a local version of Media Ranch format Judge For One Day, which is going straight into production.
The format explores what happens when eight ordinary people are given the opportunity to act as criminal judges for a day. Participants watch the same reconstruction of crimes but then vary in their sentences.
The show is originally a format from Danish pubcaster DR, which aired the show on DR 2, and is part of Media Ranch’s slate for MIPCOM next week.
The Canuck company picked up rights to sell the entire DR format catalogue in the spring, with its shows available at MIPCOM alongside other formats such as gameshow Watch! and social experimental format Get Lost Honey.
