TV3, Viaplay commission Swedish version of Banijay’s Journey format

Adventure format The Journey – 15 Days in Nepal

The Viaplay Group has commissioned The Journey – 15 Days in Nepal, an adventure format originally created by Banijay label Mastiff TV Denmark.

Banijay’s Swedish label Meter TV will produce the new version that will air on Viaplay and commercial linear network TV3.

In The Journey, six celebrities travel through the Nepalese jungle, trekking alongside elephants, tigers and rhinos to reach the Himalayan mountains.

The forthcoming Swedish series features actors Peter Stormare (Fargo, The Box, American Gods) and Izabella Scorupco (Hidden, Goldeneye), comedian Alfred Svensson and World Champion swimmer Therese Alshammar.

Madelene Hansson, MD of Meter TV, said: “We are looking forward to taking Viaplay’s audience on this epic adventure and bringing Mastiff TV’s format to life. Whilst we know a lot about the celebrities, when taken out of their comfort zone they are just like us. We’re seeing a huge thirst for adventure formats set in unknown locations, and this show has been an exhilarating experience which is sure to entertain audiences of all ages.”

Meter TV is behind local versions of global brands MasterChef, Big Brother, Lego Masters and Family Food Fight.

In addition to The Journey – 15 Days in Nepal, Mastiff TV Denmark is known for creating formats like Drag Me Out, which has recently been adapted in Norway, as well as nature documentary Wild Wonderful Denmark.
