Hooray for Hollywood!

This morning's Variety had the following when discussing TV shows being sold internationally:

"Fox Look has signed a licensing pact with India's Bulldog Media and Ent. for a Hindi-language version of its hit format "Beauty and the Geek."

A local Hindi version of the U.S. reality show, in which women pair up with "geeks" to win big cash prizes -- and perhaps love -- launches on STAR's Channel V this month. The localized version will also roll out to Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, United Arab Emirates, Yemen, Maldives, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and Hong Kong." (emphasis mine)
