Redseven Entertainment signed up for the rights to produce the heartwarming factual reality format ‘Out of Office’ in Germany. Meanwhile, the production of the first series for Dutch public broadcaster NPO is in full swing following its commission last April.

The feelgood reality programme debuted on VTM in Belgium last year with strong ratings. To no surprise, since mental health and burnout are huge topics amongst the working population.

In ‘Out of Office’, we follow five people with burnout in a ground-breaking social experiment. They get to work on a local care farm, teaming up with its regular employees: people with disabilities, or rather ‘special qualities’. Together they take on a demanding project. Two worlds collide as they learn from each other along the way. Breaking down and building up again, both literally and symbolically. At the end of the project, our participants decide whether to go back to their old jobs or take a different path in life. 

‘Out of Office’ was created and produced by PIT, VTM’s in-house development and production unit and distributed by Be-Entertainment.
