In Belgium, Over de Oceaan, the first season of the Flemish adaptation of the format is now available on Telenet’s VOD platform. Its linear premiere will be with terrestrial broadcaster Vier later in 2020. The 8 x 60’ series is produced by Woestijnvis.
“We are greatly looking forward to launching Alle Hens aan Dek later this year on SBS6 and are excited of this collaboration with Rabbit Films.” commented Erik de Winter, Head of Acquisitions of Talpa TV.
Vincent ter Voert, the Founder of Vincent TV Producties, stated: “Alle Hens Aan Dek is an original, yet quite simple, survival show, showcasing our celebrity casts’ battle against the unpredictable sea. They experienced an intense and beautiful journey which is both confronting and revealing on a personal level. We are very much looking forward for our audience to share and experience their epic voyage.”
The original version of Over the Atlantic is produced by Rabbit Films Finland for TV5 (Discovery), with a 3rd season due in 2021. Other international adaptations of the format include Denmark, where a 3rd season is currently in production by Strong (NENT) for Kanal 5 Denmark; and Sweden, where the 3rd season is also set to premiere in 2021 on Kanal 5 Sweden, produced by Mastiff.
