MIPCOM 2012: Fox International Channels Unleashes 'Dog Swap' TV Reality for Italy

Two families will switch pets for a week under the watchful eye of a coach in the original format for FoxLife.

CANNES – Fox International Channels is going to the dogs in Italy.

FIC Italy has green lit production on the one hour unscripted series Cambio Cane (Dog Swap) for its FoxLife channel.

The original format sees two dogs from radically different families swap places for a week under the watchful eye of pet coach Angelo Vairain.

Each episode of Cambio Cane will focus on the relationship between two families as they attempt with varying success to bring ill-mannered dogs to heel.

Production on the original format follows FIC Italy finding success with local versions of unscripted formats like Wife Swap and Nanny 911.

International sales on Cambio Cane and its format will be handled by FIC Italy.
