London, UK, 27 November 2006: Leading independent and distribution company DLT Entertainment has sold the format for the hit comedy sitcom, My Family, to the Portuguese production company SP Filmes Filmes.

The Portuguese version of My Family is currently in Production and will be shown on RTP, the dominant Portuguese network in 2007.

Don Taffner Jr, Executive Producer of My Family and President of DLT Entertainment said, “My Family has proved to be a winning format, not only for the UK but for many other territories worldwide. We are very excited to see how the show translates to the Portuguese audience and wish both SP Filmes Filmes and RTP every success with the show.”

DLT Entertainment imported a version of the US Table Writing system for the production of My Family in the UK. A key component in the Portuguese format deal is DLT’s involvement in the production to further refine the Table Writing system for the Portuguese market. This has included sending over a member of the production staff to assist the Portuguese producers.

CMy Family is produced by DLT Entertainment in association with Rude Boy Productions for BBC ONE, and stars Robert Lindsay and Zoë Wanamaker. A seventh series of the show is currently in production at Pinewood Studios and is scheduled to air in spring 2007.

My Family continues to be the BBC’s most successful sitcom with the highest viewing figures of any UK comedy; the sixth series regularly won its Friday night primetime slot with a 30% viewing share.
