    Produced in 48 territories since its launch in 1997, the show is one of the biggest television phenomena of the past 25 years. This year is the format’s most successful to-date with 24 productions confirmed.

     The Noovo deal was negotiated by Jane Rimer, SVP of Canada, at Banijay Rights.Survivor has been a global success story for the last three decades and we are proud to be working with Bell Media to bring this tour-de-force format to French Canadian viewers for the first time,” said Rimer.

     Survivor features participants trying to survive in remote nature settings. They must get their own food, start a fire for comfort and build safe shelters. All while competing in endurance, skill and mental challenges or solve riddles. Every week one survivor will be voted off until a winner is crowned by exiled contestants.

    Bell Media is working with ToRoS productions on a local version of this successful TV show in order to create a programme that resonates with Quebec viewers. Banijay distributed the format globally.
