Swedish label Jarowskij, a Banijay Nordic company, today announces an 8 part adaptation of Banijay Rights format, SAS: Who Dares Wins for TV4.
The new Swedish version of one of the toughest shows on television will see 18 civilian volunteers participate in a Special Forces training camp, supervised by 4 former instructors.
SAS: Who Dares Wins is represented internationally by Banijay Rights, and was originally created by UK production company Minnow Films. The format has been produced in six markets, including the UK, US, France, and Australia, where a second series was recently commissioned. In Denmark, where three seasons have aired, Mastiff Denmark, a Banijay company are producing a celebrity version for TV2, which will broadcast in the spring.
Iréne Lindblad, Chief Executive Officer at Jarowskij says; “SAS: Who Dares Wins is an intensely gripping format, and the TV4 audience will revel in the participant’s resilience, which is put to the test by the SAS professionals. Navigating conditions within the spectacular Swedish terrain won’t be easy but will certainly make great television.”
