The documentary reality series Beyond Human Boundaries will be debuting in Central and Eastern Europe this autumn on Spektrum TV. The series of the original title Arman ja viimeinen ristiretki,distributed by Rabbit Films, is a Finnish documentary-reality experiment, which tells about the triumph of the human spirit. The documentary-reality program features journalist-explorer Arman Alizad, who travels with his cameraman to eight countries to familiarize with specific lifestyles. The series features extraordinary stories ranging from the eagle-hunter tribe from Mongolia to the human Ken-doll from Brazil. It is not only a show of endurance, it’s an emotional story of gaining trust and building friendships and understanding between different ways of life around the world.
“We are very much looking forward to bringing Beyond Human Boundaries to Spektrum TV’s audiences in Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia in late October. We have high hopes and we expect great ratings from this extraordinary series,” says Laszlo Gaspar, Head of the Infotainment Channel Portfolio at AMC Networks International (Central and Northern Europe).
In autumn 2018, the third season of Beyond Human Boundaries premiered on Nelonen Finland to an average share of 21%. The season was nominated for the Finnish TV Award for Best News-Documentary Programme. The first season of the series won 2 Finnish TV Awards for Best Reality and Best Performer.
“We are excited to partner with Spektrum TV to launch one of our key brands in Central and Eastern Europe. The topics Arman covers across the series are controversial yet relatable globally and with broadcasters across the region displaying an appetite for male skewed factual titles we feel this is a perfect fit,” commented Natalia Sterlikova, International Sales Agent for CEE at Rabbit Films, who brokered the deal.
