FremantleMedia has picked up the rights to Canadian comedy series, Godiva, which is not about either chocolate or a naked woman, but instead about a trendy Vancouver restaurant and the trendy young people who run it (OK, so there could be some chocolate involved).
The hour series is a co-production of Chum TV and Keatley Entertainment.
The deal, for six episodes of this season and 13 of the next, is quite a vote of confidence for a show that only debuted in March on Bravo! Canada.
FremantleMedia was particularly attracted to its strength in the 18-34 and 18-49 demos, where it rated "well above Bravo's prime time average."
