Cash in the Attic is a proven international hit format – one of only a small handful of titles that have run for over a decade, has standalone episodes which are affordable to produce, and really showcases local stories that can be adapted to each market. We have all spent the last few years thinking about what is truly important to us, clearing out closets and dreaming up plans for the future – so Cash in the Attic is more relevant than ever. The series is fun, heart-warming and full of some amazing stories that we are excited to bring to the market’.
