Banijay Rights, the global distribution arm of Banijay, today announces two new adaptations of popular adventure reality show Survivor – with landmark co-production agreements confirmed across Central and South-Eastern Europe.
United Media-owned Nova TV in Croatia and Nova S in Serbia will broadcast a first season of the world-famous format in late 2022.
In addition, TV Markíza in Slovakia and TV Nova in the Czech Republic will air a new adaptation of the format. Acun Medya is on board as local producer for both versions.
Both agreements were brokered by Samia Moktar, VP CEE & Airlines, Banijay Rights, who said: “Survivor has long been a global television hit, but these new versions prove this format continues to have fresh and broad appeal for broadcasters worldwide. We’re excited to be working with our local broadcast and production partners across the CEE region on what are set to be exceptional adaptations of this show.”
Produced in 48 territories since its launch in 1997, Survivor is one of the biggest television phenomena of the past 25 years. Last year was the format’s most successful to-date, with 24 productions confirmed.
The rules of Survivor are clear: contestants are divided in two tribes and fight in daily challenges for immunity and other advantages. After each immunity challenge, one team needs to see one of their own eliminated and on the way home. It is a tough competition and there is only one Survivor: the one that goes home with the title and the big award.
