Mark Burnett International has acquired the worldwide distribution and format rights of All for Nothing? a reality series from indie Mountain Road Productions. Series executive producer Tim Alp of Ottawa-based Mountain Road looks set to see the one-hour Canadian design and real estate series show up in a host of foreign markets as local versions.


All-For-Nothing“We’re just wrapping up the MIPTV show in Cannes, France and buyers have reacted very positively on both the tape and format of the show. All for Nothing? is going global,” C. Scot Cru, managing director at Mark Burnett International said in a statement.

All For Nothing? was conceived by Alp and developed with Corus Entertainment’s director of original programming Claire Freeland.

The reality series, shot in Ottawa, sees two local homeowners battle it out to see which can ready their neglected home for a property sale in two weeks for little or no money.

Contestants also receive free real estate and design advice.

Production is now underway on a second season, or another 26 episodes, to debut this summer on Canada’s W Network.

One part design transformation series, and one part fast-paced real estate drama, ALL FOR NOTHING? is a one hour TV series that pits homeowner against homeowner in a competition to ready their neglected homes for sale. The catch?

They have to attempt to do it all for nothing.

Motivation is high, as the two sets of homeowners are competing for a money-saving prize: the commission-free listing services of top real estate agent and host, Paul Rushforth. Jam-packed full of ideas and tips from top notch designer, Penny Southam, and solid real estate advice from Paul Rushforth, each episode will inspire budget strapped homeowners to take on the challenge of achieving professional pre-listing make-overs.
