Welsh language broadcaster S4C has put out a call for production companies to tender for the Welsh language version of Channel 4 and Studio Lambert’s Gogglebox format.
The new version, under license to S4C by Studio Lambert, will be transmitted late Autumn 2022. This format will be titled Gogglebocs Cymru.
Gogglebocs Cymru’s casting “will need to reflect modern Wales in its entirety” and will “celebrate Welsh characters around Wales and Welsh speakers in and around the rest of the UK.”
As part of this process, S4C will also welcome additional ideas which will extend the reach, especially multi-platform and digitally.
S4C’S Chief Content Officer, LLinos Griffin-Williams, said: “I am thrilled that Channel 4 has, for the first time, made an exception with one of their most valued formats, by agreeing to release exclusivity of Gogglebox in the UK to S4C. As two public service broadcasters, with a close and collaborative working relationship, we are delighted to be entrusted with such an important brand.”
