SimpelZodiak, a Banijay Benelux company, is producing the new factual-entertainment series Table for Two for KRO-NCRV at NPO 3.
Table for Two (Tafel voor Twee) features two people having dinner at a restaurant. However, for one of the guests, their dinner companion and why they have been invited is unknown. The mystery guest could be a loved one, a long-lost friend or an ex-partner, who will have the chance to say something they have wanted to get off their chest for a while.
Laurens Woldberg, managing director of SimpelZodiak, commented: “Friendship, love, surprises, reunions, regrets: you see it all in Table for Two. Covid-19 has made us all realize how crucial our social connections are and life is too short to leave things unspoken. We are very happy and proud that we are able to produce this series for KRO-NCRV and NPO3.”
James Townley, global head of content development for Banijay’s creative networks, adds: “International relationship formats remain extremely popular and Table for Two approaches this theme at a fresh angle, covering everything from friendships, love to familial ties. This emotionally charged format is a complementary addition to the Banijay factual-entertainment slate and comes at a time when audiences are craving tonally uplifting and comforting stories that are universally relatable.”
