London – A ground-breaking and life-affirming format created by Ulrik Jørgensen, Head of Programmes at Nordisk Film TV, a Banijay Group company, Something Special, is to be made into local versions across the Nordic region ahead of its MIP-TV launch.
The inspirational reality format Something Special, which sees a group of young athletes follow their dreams at the Special Olympics in Los Angeles, has been picked up by TV2 Denmark, TV2 Norway and TV4 Sweden. Each of these versions will be produced by Nordisk Film TV production companies. Negotiations are also underway with other territories keen to air their own local adaptions.
“We are proud to follow these passionate athletes on their exciting journey to the Special Olympics in Los Angeles. I am sure that the viewers will be inspired as well as motivated by these true heroes,” said Jakob Hansson, Acting Head of Commissioning TV4 Sweden.
