London 31 May 07: Award-winning production and distribution company DLT Entertainment has acquired the UK format rights to Miss Ability.

A television competition with a difference, the original Dutch version of Miss Ability is specifically for women with a visible physical disability. The contestants compete for the Miss Ability title to become ambassador of disabled rights in Holland. A competition of, personality, intelligence, charisma, and beauty Miss Ability empowers the contestants to focus on their strengths and present a positive representation of physical disability.

A panel of diverse judges help the viewers at home determine the winning contestant who will also receive a modelling or acting contract.

Miss Ability was originally broadcast in the Netherlands on NL 2 last year where it won an impressive 25% of the market share, winning its timeslot. The second competition airs in early June.

Don Taffner Jr, President of DLT Entertainment said, “We believe Miss Ability to be a very exciting and thought provoking idea. The television market is currently awash with varying talent competitions; however Miss Ability brings a new dimension to the table, separating itself from the rest of the crowd. The show did extremely well in the Netherlands and we are sure that we can equal that success here in the UK.”

DLT Entertainment is currently in talks with a number of broadcasters in the UK and is exploring the possibility of obtaining the US rights for the show.
