Cuarzo Producciones, part of Banijay Iberia, is co-developing the new reality show ¡Vaya Vacaciones! with Mediaset España.
Presented by Luján Argüelles, ¡Vaya Vacaciones! will see eight celebrity couples staying in an all-inclusive luxury hotel, accompanied by a couple of their choosing. Together, they will enjoy the sun and sea of the Dominican Republic—however, the serenity can’t last forever.
Juanra Gonzalo, managing director at Cuarzo Producciones, said: “Spain loves reality TV, and we hope they’re as excited as we are about ¡Vaya Vacaciones! Not only will the show be full of addictive entertainment, but we’re also thrilled to have Luján on board with her unique style and sense of humor.”
James Townley, chief content officer for development at Banijay, added: “¡Vaya Vacaciones! is the perfect summer viewing, with a tantalizing combination of a luxury location, celebrities and, of course, some twists and drama. Reality TV continues to be in big demand globally, attracting huge audiences, and this new format really taps into Cuarzo’s expertise at delivering world-class entertainment in this genre.”
Jaime Guerra, director of content production at Mediaset España, said: “At Mediaset España, we are constantly searching for new entertainment formats, whether they are products that have proven successful in the international market or programs developed together with production companies, such as ¡Vaya Vacaciones! It is a reality show that will showcase a range of relationship dynamics and have humorous elements, making it the perfect content for the summer.”
