Germany finds its own Utopia

Utopia1Germany’s Sat.1 has commissioned a local version of Talpa Media’s social experiment format Utopia.

The ProSiebenSat.1-owned channel will launch the format on TV and online as a coproduction between Talpa and the latter’s German production partner Schwartzkopff TV.

It becomes the fourth territory to get its own version of the show, which began on the Netherlands’ SBS6 and has sold to Fox in the US and TV8 in Turkey.
