Reveille Acquires Format to Hit British Drama 'No Angels' for American Market

[via press release from Reveille]


UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. -- September 21, 2004 -� Reveille has acquired the format rights to Britain's Channel 4 hit drama "No Angels" and will adapt the show for the U.S. market, it was announced today by Reveille CEO, Ben Silverman. "No Angels" is currently in production of its second season for Channel 4 and is produced by World Productions.

No Angels is a provocative comedy drama centering on a close-knit group of female nurses who live, work and play together. By day the girls struggle with life and death on the wards; by night they share a healthy appetite for uncomplicated sex and full-on hedonism.

"No Angels is a dynamic franchise with unapologetic characters living life at full speed. It's like nothing on TV today and I'm thrilled to be bringing it to American Television in conjunction with John Heyman and World Productions," stated Ben Silverman.

"We're very excited to be working with Ben to bring the distinctive flavor of "No Angels" to the U.S. audience," said U.K. "No Angels" executive producer Simon Heath.

Reveille's continued efforts to utilize key international relationships such as the exclusive "first look" deal with BBC Worldwide has resulted in the recent format acquisition of BBC's drama series "Judge John Deed," which is being adapted with Michael Chernuchin ("Law & Order") for NBC. Other recent international format acquisitions include RCN's "Betty La Fea," for ABC, Columbia's most successful and highest rated telenovela and Spain's hit series "The Serranos".

REVEILLE, a joint venture between Ben Silverman and NBC Universal Television Studio, develops, produces and distributes new and non-traditional programming formats for television and motion pictures across a variety of genres, including comedy, drama, game, and reality for American and international markets. In addition to selling television formats for independent producers such as NBC Universal Television Studios (USA Network, Sci Fi Channel), BBC Worldwide, Renegade and Princess Productions, Reveille sells its own produced program formats such as "The Restaurant" (NBC), "Blow Out" (Bravo) and "30 Days" (FX).

Reveille has produced television projects such as NBC's "Coupling," and "The Restaurant", "Blow Out" on Bravo and "Nashville Star" for USA Network. Currently in production are "The Biggest Loser" (NBC), "The Office" (NBC), "The Club" (Spike TV) and the Morgan Spurlock project "30 Days" (FX Networks). Reveille also distributed the internationally renowned, award-winning "911" documentary and is a world leader in creating integrated marketing opportunities for leading advertisers, developing alternative financing paradigms and selling and distributing television formats in markets worldwide.
