Polsat Café has just licensed Global Agency’s popular daily makeover format “Shopping Monsters.” Polsat Café is owned and operated by one of Poland’s biggest broadcasters, Polsat, and the format is set to air in September.

In addition to the deal with Polsat Cafe in Poland, Shopping Monsters’ second season is being produced by Herve Hubert for M6 in France and the fifth season by Constantin Entertainment for VOX TV in Germany. It has also run in Bulgaria (TV 7), the Netherlands (RTL 5), Hungary (FEM3), Romania (Prima TV), Ukraine (K1), Russia (CTC) and Latvia (TV3). In Turkey, Kanal D has aired 700 episodes of the show.

'Shopping Monsters' is a stripped daily entertainment format in which five women each week compete to see who can get the best makeover in a limited amount of time, and on a fixed budget. Every day one contestant puts together her new style, and is then given a secret score by her four rivals. At the end of the week, the woman with the highest total score wins a cash prize.

Izzet Pinto, CEO of Global Agency, said: “Shopping Monsters is one of the most popular and most talked about formats of Global Agency. We’re pleased to announce this deal and I'm sure the show will be the perfect fit for Polsat’s schedule.”
