SAT.1 is bringing the reality format Big Brother back to German screens after a five-year hiatus.
Produced by Endemol Shine Germany, SAT.1 will have a celebrity version launching on August 9.
The return of Big Brother in Germany marks the third recent comeback for the format, with a successful run just wrapping up in Poland on TVN7, where the show returned after ten years, and the upcoming series in Finland, where Nelonen ordered an adaptation from Endemol Shine Finland. The format last aired in Finland five years ago, and this deal will see Big Brother launch on Jim and Ruutu in the fall.
This year marks 20 years since Big Brother made its worldwide debut in the Netherlands.
