Quebecor Content, the studio division of Canada’s Quebecor Media, is making a French-language version of the ITV Studios reality format I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
This new local version is being produced by Montreal-based Productions Déferlantes in collaboration with Quebecor Content, and will debut on on Quebecor’s French-language network TVA this fall.
The format follows well-known personalities of all ages and backgrounds as they rough in the jungle, competing in a series of challenges. Originating in the UK, it has now sold to 15 countries, including Australia and France.
Quebecor Content has previously adapted ITV Studios formats The Voice and Love Island as local French-language versions.
“The new acquisition solidifies our partnership with this high-caliber international distributor, as well as our commitment to offering Quebec audiences the best world-class content,” said Yann Paquet, VP, strategy & international business, Quebecor Content.
“The addition of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! to our roster of major formats reaffirms our entertainment drawing- power, as it generates a renewed sense of excitement among TVA viewers.”
