RTL Germany Slates Dori Media’s Power Couple


TEL AVIV/MUNICH: RTL in Germany has added to its summer schedule a local adaptation of the Abot Hameiri-created reality format Power Couple, distributed by Dori Media Group.

Das Sommerhaus der Stars – Kampf der Promipaare consists of four 90-minute episodes in which celebrity couples engage in challenges in order to win cash prizes. It kicks off July 13 in a prime-time slot. Seapoint Productions, which previously adapted Dancing with the Stars and Let’s Dance, is making the German version of Power Couple, which Dori has licensed in more than ten markets, including Brazil, India, the U.S. and China.

“Cross-continental sales of Power Couple demonstrate the momentum we are building with this format and how it appeals to a variety of audiences across different territories,” said Nadav Palti, CEO and president of Dori Media. “Given RTL’s reach and focus on quality content, we are delighted to have secured the sale and we are confident that Power Couple will also become a hit in Germany. Due to its broad appeal we fully expect the format to continue to sell across the globe.”
