On June 5 at the Telefilm Vietnam 2014 international television market (June 5-7, Ho Chi Minh City), TBS and government-operated Vietnam Television (VTV) announced their agreement to produce a local version of the TBS sports entertainment programme Sasuke in Vietnam. The new series is scheduled to reach Vietnamese viewers by early 2015.
Participating in Telefilm Vietnam 2014 with a special area inside the venue, VTV and TBS recreated two popular Sasuke obstacles at full scale: the “Warped Wall” and the “Tarzan Rope”. The exhibit of these world-renowned obstacles vividly impressed upon visitors the reality of Sasuke coming to Vietnam. VTV President Tran Binh Minh, who officiated at the opening ceremony of Telefilm Vietnam 2014, announced the new Vietnamese Sasuke in front of the two obstacles, garnering excellent TV coverage.
