Telecinco in Spain has ordered a local version of Banijay format Survivor, with the French group’s Cuarzo Producciones set to produce.

The Spanish remake will be filmed in Honduras and is to be accompanied by a companion show, ¿Quién dijo quiero ir a Supervivientes? for Mitele PLUS.

Juan Ramón Gonzalo, MD at Cuarzo, said: “With this new series, we will continue to honour the themes of adventure and survival, which are key pillars of the format.

“But we want to place as much emphasis on the personal growth of the contestants, as on the games. Cuarzo Producciones is renowned for daring casting, impeccable productions and formats full of surprises, and we will be bringing these qualities to our first Survivor production.”

Lucas Green, chief content officer of operations at Banijay, added: “Survivor is one of Banijay’s biggest and most travelled IPs, which has enjoyed success in Spain for many years. We are delighted Cuarzo Producciones will be producing the show, bringing its unrivalled expertise at creating hugely successful, world-class entertainment to this iconic format.”
