Endemol Shine Group announced that The Island will be launching in Germany for the first time.

Produced by Endemol Shine Germany, the series will be filmed this summer and air on ProSieben in 2015. Originally produced in the UK by Shine TV and Bear Grylls Ventures for Channel 4, Germany is the fourth territory to pick up The Island, which has already successfully aired in France and the U.S.

In the UK, the second series of The Island doubled Channel 4’s primetime average; hitting a peak audience of 3.6 million (14.4% share). Having recently ordered a third run, Channel 4 received a record number of applicants with 135,000 people looking to take part.

In France M6 just signed a deal to bring a second series to their screens, having performed strongly across key demographics and attracting up to 3 million (12.9% share).
