Star TV, one of Greece’s largest commercial broadcasters, is set to premiere a local adaptation of the Rabbit Films’ original adventure reality format, Globetrotters. The 12 x 90 mins series is produced by Star’s in-house production company Green Pixel.
Globetrotters follows local celebrities who are competing against each other to complete a number of tasks around the world. Each task will always be located in a new country, where the celebrity needs to travel by using any means necessary. The original version was a 10 x 60 mins series that aired on Nelonen Finland in 2018. The Finnish version featured three celebrities: singer Mikko Kuustonen, actor Jussi Vatanen and social media influencer Saara.
The Greek version will differ from the original in that it will feature three pairs of celebrities: married couple singer Haris Varthakouris and presenter Adelina Varthakouris; Masterchef Greece chefs Christos Mparkas and Pantelis Vouros; as well as father and son duo consisting of football player Stelios Kritikos and model Michael Angelos Kritikos. The series will be presented by Petros Polychronidis.
In addition to Globetrotters, Rabbit will be presenting a slate of brand new formats at the upcoming MIPCOM 2019 Festival in Cannes. Heading the line-up is competition reality series Battle Ranch, which features 12 fearless contestants competing in crazy farm-related challenges. The first season is currently on air on MTV3 Finland and is the highest rated original programme launch of the season to date! And to celebrate its upcoming 100th episode, Rabbit is re-presenting the comedy panel format Should I Be Worried. The features a panel of quirky celebrity author panelists who hilariously comment on the ordinary and extraordinary things that worry the viewers. The show’s 7th season is currently airing on MTV3 Finland to both rave reviews and continued high ratings.
