Mark Burnett International Picks Up 'All for Nothing?'

Mark Burnett distribution arm acquires worldwide TV and format rights to Canadian property reality series out of Mip TV.

TORONTO -- Mark Burnett International has acquired the worldwide distribution and format rights to the Canadian reality property series All For Nothing? from indie producer Mountain Road Productions.

Designed for frugal times, the design and real estate series pits two homeowners against one another to see who can most increase the value of their neglected home while spending the least to do so.

The challege: Can they do it all for nothing? The reality series was created by Tim Alp of Mountain Road Productions, and developed with Claire Freeland, director of original programming at domestic broadcaster Corus Entertainment.

The deal, unveiled by C. Scot Cru, managing director at Mark Burnett International, follows in the wake of Mip TV.

The series is shot in Ottawa, with the second season now in production for W Network, the Canadian womens' cable channel.
