TAR: more versions from around the world
« on: April 08, 2008, 03:26:21 PM »
From Variety:

An Israeli local-language version? Racing around Asia?

Quote
CANNES — Disney-ABC Intl. execs unveiled another brace of deals Tuesday at Mip TV, continuing what has been a busy market so far for the Mouse House.
Disney inked a deal with Israeli channel Reshet to license a local-language version of reality skein “The Amazing Race” for production later this year across Asia.
Deal comes on the back of the English-language version of “The Amazing Race Asia” with AXN.

New show will see contestants from Israel racing around the clock across Asia.

The Amazing Race Heads to Israel

CANNES, April 8: Disney-ABC International Television has licensed its Emmy Award-winning format The Amazing Race to Reshet in Israel, for a local version to be produced across Asia later this year.

 

The new version will see contestants from Israel divided into teams of two people with a variety of relationships to be filmed around the clock in a race to various destinations across Asia. At each destination, the teams will have to compete in a series of challenges—some mental and some physical—and only when the tasks have been completed will they learn their next destination. The teams who are farthest behind will continue to get eliminated as the contest progresses, and the first team to arrive at the final destination wins a large cash prize.

 

Tom Toumazis, the executive VP and managing director for Disney-ABC International Television for EMEA and Canada, commented: “The format of The Amazing Race has seen great success in the U.S. and Asia—the high-octane excitement and ‘fish out of water’ comedy of the series has held universal appeal for viewers. We are looking forward to seeing an action-packed contest between contestants from Israel, across Asia.”

 

Amir Maori, Reshet's executive VP of programming, said: “We are very excited to be a part of one of the most successful reality brands in worldwide television and we are looking forward to bringing Israeli audiences the greatest show ever produced in Israel.”

My Spanish skills are ummm, non-existent,  :duno: but this looks like an Amazing Race wanna-be...

Maybe someone can translate...

I am not fluent in Spanish, but I can tell you the gist of what this is about. "Antena 3 de Television, S.A., ( BMAD:  A3TV) is a Spanish television network and media company, present in the television, radio and cinema industries." They have developed a competition to recreate "Around the World in 80 Days" concept of Jules Verne. I interpret that to mean that teams will go around the globe in 80 days. The winning team will receive 200,000 Euros as first place prize. If someone who can translate Spanish can do so, we will know more.

Other tidbits:
- 14 pairs
- traveling through Europe, Asia, Africa and the US
- the teams have to "bet" an item of value to them; if they lose, it gets taken away (I think)
- racing reports will be provided daily

So it's like BB:UK meets TAR, with a dash of FOX-style cruelty if I'm right.

(First post, but I've been lurking for awhile  :waves:)

Disney Media Networks Latin America and Discovery Networks Latin America/U.S. Hispanic are to produce a local version of long running reality show "The Amazing Race" for the entire region.

http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117994117.html?categoryid=1071&cs=1

Official website at Discovery Latin America: http://www.tudiscovery.com/race/

Applications are due on January 31, and the actual race will be later in 2009, apparently just in Latin America. Pretty awesome, personally, because I'm Costa Rican.  :tup:

Thanks! This seems like a very friendly place. :D


Interestingly enough, the official site has a poll asking what country visitors would most like the race to visit. Currently Colombia is winning. It doesn't actually say that the race will actually go there, though. Maybe they'll come here.

I think they're having them speak Spanish in the race. The site is in Spanish.
