Survivor Set for Germany


Banijay Productions will launch Survivor in Germany with Vox and TV Now.

Banijay Group’s adventure reality format is set to return to the European territory for a new series. The show will see 18 people sent to a desert island for 40 long days with barely the clothes on their backs.

Survivor has notched up over 40 local format territories worldwide.

Kai Sturm, Vox chief editor and entertainment manager, commented: “We are constantly looking for new ideas to expand our Vox portfolio. In doing so, we also come across a number of formats that have had significant success worldwide. Survivor is one of the world’s leading entertainment brands. From a pure adventure show to a highly intelligent and exciting strategy game with physical challenges, the show has inspired the entire Vox team. We are sure that together with the long-term international production partners and the team at Banijay Productions Germany, this will be an extraordinary modern implementation of the show.”

Moritz Pohl, head of VOD content of RTL Interactive and responsible for TV Now, added: “TV Now brings online subscription video-on-demand to mainstream audiences. An important pillar of our content strategy is also working with partners to get shows like Survivor off the ground.”

Arno Schneppenheim, managing director of Banijay Productions Germany, commented: “Since Banijay Group acquired Castaway Productions last year, Survivor has become a crucial brand for the business and we are so pleased to be rolling it out in Germany. Vox and TV Now act as the perfect home for the show, sharing both our creative vision and ambition, and we are excited to get started on bringing a new imagining of the series to German audiences.”
