Denmark’s TV 2 searches for ‘The Lost Ones’ in new Fremantle adventure format

The Lost Ones

Danish pubcaster TV 2 has commissioned The Lost Ones (aka Flokken), a new adventure format that sees ordinary people stranded in a remote location.

Produced by Fremantle label Strong Productions, the series follows the participants as they are tasked with holding out until they are rescued.

Participants are only given basic food, a radio and essential survival equipment, and have no idea who else is scattered across the deserted landscape. All they know is that they have to survive until evacuation and that the only way out is together.

Fremantle holds the global rights for the format.

“It’s always fascinating to see how people navigate new landscapes especially when they have limited resources.  Here we have a group of participants who will need to push themselves to find a way out of an inhospitable location. It’s a real test of ingenuity, survival instinct and as the journey unfolds, teamwork,” said Danny Rowlands, SVP, global development at Fremantle.

“This format is an entertaining and exciting twist on the survival reality genre. It will bring people together as they invest in the journeys of the participants as they make their way through the unknown. This is a great collaboration between Strong and TV 2, and like The Lost Ones, we are excited to see how it unfolds.”

Dorthe Thirstrup, channel controller at TV 2, said: “In a world dominated by closed echo chambers, we at TV 2 try to focus on all the things we have in common. In addition to offering escapism and tremendous production values, we also believe that the new format The Lost Ones can inspire us all to acknowledge that we are stronger united.”
