Power Couple Expands Around the World


Dori Media Group’s relationship format Power Couple has been renewed in various territories around the world and picked up for new adaptations in the Nordics.

The format will be returning with new seasons in Germany, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia and Romania. It will be expanding to Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway through Banijay Nordic.

Germany’s version, Das Sommerhaus der Stars, has been renewed for a ninth season on RTL, and, in addition to the celebrity version, RTL will be producing a spin-off with non-celebrity couples for RTL+.

The Hungarian adaptation has been renewed for an eighth season by RTL, which has also renewed the series for a fifth season in Croatia. POP TV signed on for a third season in Slovenia, and the Romanian adaptation will return for a second season on Antena.

Power Couple was created by Abot Hameiri and first debuted in 2014 on Israel’s Reshet. It follows celebrity and non-celebrity couples that move into one villa together and compete in challenges to determine who is the power couple. It tests how much couples really know about each other and how much money they are willing to bet on it.

“We are thrilled that our hit format Power Couple continues to drive large prime-time audiences to our network and streaming partners across the world,” said Nadav Palti, CEO and president of Dori Media Group. “The success is so big that Germany is now producing two seasons, and we are expanding across the Nordics. This series puts couples to the test and captivates viewers of all ages wanting to see who truly is the Power Couple.”
