Twofour scores first Slovenian format deal

Formats-logo-460_2The JumpTwofour has sold ski-jumping format The Jump to a Slovenia network, with plans to build a production hub in country for other east Europe remakes.

Antenna Group’s Planet TV has acquired local rights to the format, which UK-based Twofour and GroupM Entertainment own.

A 30x60mins series is set to air later this year, with Twofour planning to use the local hub created for the show for other remakes.

“A Slovenian hub creates a great opportunity for broadcasters across central eastern Europe to acquire this format,” said Twofour sales executive Reka Gaspar.

The format sees celebrities training to do open-air alpine ski challenges, with contestants eliminated through a live jump. The original British series has run to three seasons on terrestrial Channel 4.

The deal with Planet is the first Slovenian deal for Twofour Right, whose parent Twofour Group is now owned by ITV.
