Survivor 15 China
« on: April 13, 2007, 04:19:34 PM »
Next on Survivor: Did Someone Order Chinese?
Yeah, yeah, Fiji just started, but are you ready for some scoop about the next edition of Survivor? How about Survivor: China? TV Guide hears there's a very strong possibility that the show's 15th cycle will head out to the world's most populous country this summer.

Should it come to pass, a key difference will be that if a rival alliance decides to take you out, there will be at least a 30-minute wait.

There have been rumors floating around that S15 may film in China. I was watching Craig Ferguson
 the other night and Jeff was the guest and he said they were looking into filming in a more "exotic" location , some place without palm trees.

I can't imagine survivor any where else but a beach setting! I think they should just stick with the same formula...it works. As long as they have a lot of interesting twists and an awesome cast the show should be fine.

I did enjoy seasons without the typical beach setting.  For example, Africa and Amazon.  Both I am still waiting for the DVDs.

Bring on China!  That would make a great season!

Reality show "Survivor" filming in China: report
Today at 9:33 am

http://tv.yahoo.com/news/article/urn:newsml:tv.reuters.com:20070418:survivor_dc__ER:1;_ylt=AkZfMAR43EZzQ0sY.tIrVAP6o9EF

The next edition of "Survivor" will be filmed in China, making the reality show the first American network TV production to shoot an entire series in the communist nation, trade paper Daily Variety reported on Wednesday.

The report did not say when CBS would begin production on the 14th cycle of the castaway saga, or where in China the action would be set.

The CBS Corp. unit is airing "Survivor: Fiji," which is averaging about 15.8 million viewers, on par with the viewership for the previous installment, "Survivor: Cook Islands."

Daily Variety said the move to China takes the series away from an island setting for the first time since 2003's sixth installment, which was set in the Amazon jungle, and that the China locale should boost the show's international appeal.

China is a difficult place to film because of logistical and government restrictions. Last year's Warner Bros. period drama "The Painted Veil" was filmed there in partnership with the Chinese government, which had final say over the finished product and objected to several scenes. This led to tense negotiations between Chinese officials and the film's star, Edward Norton, and director, John Curran.

Seems to be confirmed!

CBS, 'Survivor' go to China
By JOSEF ADALIAN

CBS has booked China as the location for the next edition of "Survivor," and locked in premiere dates for two key summer reality shows -- including Mark Burnett's "Pirate Master."

Production of U.S. entertainment projects in mainland China had been rare, due to logistical and government restrictions. But with a growing economy, China has begun a more open policy, including its active wooing to host the 2008 Beijing Olympics. While bigscreen features, such as the 2006 "The Painted Veil," forged new ground by filming completely in China, CBS's lensing of an entire series is a precedent for an American network.

The China setting should also boost "Survivor's" appeal to overseas auds. Skein airs in numerous countries around the world.

The move to China for the 14th edition takes the skein away from an island setting for the first time since the sixth installment, set in the Amazon jungle.

I know this probably has nothing to do with the filming location itself, but heck, I'm suffering from TAR withdrawals already!


The Bund, Shanghai


Leshan Buddha, Sichuan


Tongli, Suzhou, Zhejiang


Forbidden City at night? Note the Qing headgear. Re-enactment of course.


渡普航慈 is a Buddhist phrase.


Lijiang (Li River), Guangxi


Add this one for good measure...


And Puddin's picture is of the Tangyue Archway Group, Anhui. (Yay!)

Speaking of Poyang Lake, anyone read anything into this?

Your the best Neobie  :jumpy:. And your right it probably has nothing to do with filming but its something to do and maybe we can narrow down the location or get close :). I think the actual filming is in early July? So keep your ears open :bow:

I want to play!

Video trip on the Li River  (choose Li River)

And a Survivor location with a Time Travel Vortex?--this could be the best season ever! :o

The distribution maps for snow leopards and giant pandas puts it somewhere in Sichuan or Yunnan. Tigers don't fit in that well, but here's the range map anyway. I've had no luck searching for "sacred mountain" with the province names (nothing that would match the caps anyway); who knows, the whole passage could be just a fancy way of referring to the whole of China itself.
