Insight TV Readies Breaking Boundaries Dance Series


Insight TV has teamed up with Red Bull Media House to co-produce Breaking Boundaries, a new series centered on the cultural phenomenon of break dancing.

In the six-part series, six pairs of breakers discover hip-hop culture in different cities around the world. In every episode, each breaker is shown in his or her hometown and then is paired with a fellow breaker in a different city to experience a new outlook on breaking culture. In the destination cities—including Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo, London, Rotterdam, Lagos and New York City—the pairs will share experiences and dance together.

Preproduction and casting are well underway for Breaking Boundaries, with filming in 4K UHD HDR set to begin in September ahead of its slated premiere next spring.

Arun Maljaars, VP of content and channels at Insight TV, said: “The title Breaking Boundaries has significance on more than one level—both the breakers and the production team are definitely breaking boundaries for this series. In joining forces with Red Bull Media House, we are combining the resources of our two international media companies to overcome the obstacles and restrictions created by the lockdowns to create a truly unique series. It’s a collaboration on an epic scale and we’re excited to share it with our viewers around the world.”
