Gurin Co. takes 'First & Last' global

Hour-long human-interest format selling internationally

LONDON -- Global format producer the Gurin Company has signed format deals in Australia, New Zealand, Greece, the Netherlands and Belgium for docu-entertainment series "First & Last," based on the pilot it is currently producing for TNT.

The hour-long human-interest show follows individuals doing things for the first and last times, for example a doctor performing their first surgery or a coach working with his team for a final season.

Channel Nine Australia has optioned the format, along with New Zealand's Touchdown Eyeworks, Greece's Big Sun and Creative Media, in the Netherlands and Belgium.

Gurin is also in talks with other broadcasters across Europe, Asia and Latin America and expects to announce additional format deals in those territories, the company said.
