Canada’s V Network Takes Plunge With ‘Stars in Danger: High Diving’ Format
The Canadian channel has acquired Banijay International’s adaptation of the German celebrity-driven reality series.
TORONTO – Canadian celebrities will go overboard as the French-language V network remakes Banijay International’s format Stars in Danger: High Diving.
The French-language channel has tapped Montreal-based La Presse Télé to produce a local adaptation based on the original German format that sees celebrities given a crash course in diving, where they face their fears on a towering diving board.
“As a general entertainment channel with a strong history of flagship sports programming, we were delighted to discover Stars In Danger: High Diving. Its blend of elite sport and high octane entertainment is perfect for our audience,” Natalie Larivière, executive vp and COO at V, said in a statement.
Stars in Danger: High Diving was developed by Banijay Group company Brainpool and has aired on ProSieben since 2004.
La Presse Télé is best known for popular Quebec reality shows like Coach Trip, Farmer Wants a Wife and Grilling Chefs!
The Stars in Danger: High Diving format has also been sold to Fox in the U.S., Chinese satellite broadcaster Jiangsu Satellite Channel, and TV3 in Sweden.
