FremantleMedia North America has signed a pact with UK production company Ten Alps TV to acquire reality show formats for U.S. audiences, the parties announced Tuesday.

Fremantle produces shows such as “American Idol,” “How Clean Is Your House?” and “The Swan.” The first Ten Alps-created program under option is called “Celebrity Court.”

“Ten Alps is a seriously up and coming player in original television programming and it made sense for us to team up with them to continue to develop creative, high-quality shows for the U.S. and other markets,” said Tom Gutteridge, CEO of FremantleMedia North America. “As part of our strategy for continued expansion, we intend to make first-look deals with other international independents over the coming months.”
