UKTV sells first show to US TV


by David Allen

The group of satellite channels known as UKTV is celebrating the sale of one of its show to the US broadcaster ABC.

This may not seem to be a groundbreaking story but for UKTV it is a milestone, as this sale represents its first sale to the US.

Ty’s Great British Adventure will be aired on ABC Primetime later on in the year.

It should not come as surprise that the American market is interested in this though, because the star, Ty Pennington, is a huge name in the states.

Pennington fronts the ABC home improvement show, ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’, which also airs over here in the UK.

Ty’s Great British Adventure follows the team’s challenge to improve the town of Portreath in Cornwall, so that it attracts more visitors.
