Survivor Launching in French-Speaking Canada


Banijay Rights and Noovo have partnered to bring the reality competition series Survivor to French-speaking Canada.

A division of Bell Media, Noovo has acquired the rights to adapt Survivor for the region. Bell Media is working with ToRoS Productions on the local version of the format, which is distributed globally by Banijay Rights.

In Survivor, participants try to survive in remote nature settings, getting their own food, starting a fire and building safe shelters. They also compete in endurance, skill and mental challenges or solve riddles. Each week, one survivor is voted off until a winner is crowned by exiled contestants. 

Jane Rimer, senior VP of Canada at Banijay Rights, said: “Survivor has been a global success story for the last three decades, and we are proud to be working with Bell Media to bring this tour-de-force format to French-Canadian viewers for the first time.”

Suzane Landry, VP of content development, programming and news at Bell Media, said:“Noovo remains committed to providing audiences with high-quality content, large-scale deployment where Quebecers can identify themselves and take part at the event. With the acquisition of Survivor, we’re once again reaffirming our commitment and enhancing our already rich entertainment lineup.”
