Movistar in Spain has picked up the local rights for Armoza Formats’ The Running Show.
The talk show format with a twist will be produced for Movistar’s main channel, #0, by Zanskar Producciones. Set to premiere this month, The Running Show will air under the local title El Running Show and will be hosted by Raul Gomez, the host of Marathon Man.
The Running Show is a fast-paced lifestyle format that combines the essence of a talk show with a highly charged entertainment format. In each episode, the host goes on a run, joined by a variety of celebrity guests.
Gabriela Gutierrez, producer at Zanskar Producciones, said, “We are excited that The Running Show brings out a playful, spontaneous and open side of our celebrities during the interviews. The fast-paced production allows for more thoughtful questions and to get to know them in a different way. Nearly all our productions relate to nature, so filming interviews whilst running in a beautiful park seems natural to us and with all the autumn colors in the background everyone can enjoy.”
Avi Armoza, the CEO of Armoza Formats, remarked, “With the rise in the trend of running and fitness, The Running Show offers a unique way to combine this popular past-time with the entertaining elements of talk shows. We cannot wait to see the local adaptation that Zanskar Producciones has created for Spain.”
