    Comments Off on Cuarzo Producciones to Produce Banijay’s Survivor

    Media and entertainment powerhouse, Banijay, today confirms the return of Survivor to Spanish screens, produced for the first time by Cuarzo Producciones, part of Banijay Iberia, in collaboration with Mediaset España.

    Survivor will be hosted by Jorge Javier Vázquez, Carlos Sobera and Sandra Barneda, with Laura Madrueño covering all the action from Honduras. In addition, an all-new companion show, ¿Quién dijo quiero ir a Supervivientes?, for mitele PLUS, will show daily updates and all the latest news from the tribes.

    The new edition for Telecinco sees 17 celebrities leap from a helicopter and battle survival in an idyllic but isolated setting off the coast of Honduras. The contestants will face over 150 challenges with a final prize of 200,000 Euros at stake – the winner of which will be ultimately decided by the show’s viewers. Celebrities confirmed for the new series include Ángel Cristo Jr., Arancha del Sol, Arkano, Aurah Ruiz, Blanca Manchón, Carmen Borrego, Claudia Martínez, Gorka Ibarguren, Javier Ungría, Kike Calleja, Lorena Morlote, Mario González, Miri Pérez-Cabrero, Pedro García Aguado, Rocío Madrid, Rubén Torres and Zayra Gutiérrez.

    Juan Ramón Gonzalo, Managing Director, Cuarzo Producciones, comments: “With this new series, we will continue to honour the themes of adventure and survival, which are key pillars of the format. But we want to place as much emphasis on the personal growth of the contestants, as on the games. Cuarzo Producciones is renowned for daring casting, impeccable productions and formats full of surprises, and we will be bringing these qualities to our first Survivor production.”

    Lucas Green, Chief Content Officer, Operations, Banijay adds: Survivor is one of Banijay’s biggest and most travelled IPs, which has enjoyed success in Spain for many years. We are delighted Cuarzo Producciones will be producing the show, bringing its unrivalled expertise at creating hugely successful, world-class entertainment to this iconic format.”

    Created by Charlie Parsons, Survivor is a Banijay-owned format.  Since its original launch in 1997, it has been adapted across 50 territories. Recent successes include the current version in France, which became the country’s most-watched unscripted programme ever in catch-up, and the US’s 45th run, which was the #3 unscripted show of the season.

    Cuarzo Producciones is a highly creative and experienced producer, from entertainment to reality, talk shows and documentaries. Its credits include Temptation Island, original IP such as Deep Fake Love and Holy Holidays!, and the recently announced first international adaptation of No Strings Attached, among others.
