MIPTV Picks 2012: Over the Top

This adventure reality format has racked up nice results in its home country of Norway on TV2.
March 23, 2012

This adventure reality format has racked up nice results in its home country of Norway on TV2. The series brings together 14 participants from various backgrounds and with different strengths and weaknesses, to compete in assorted challenges that take place in gorgeous, yet potentially dangerous, natural settings. The contestants have two things in common – a love of nature and a personal journey needing to be taken. With adventure reality staples such as Survivor and The Amazing Race still proving to have legs, it looks like there’s still plenty of life in the genre.

Partners: Strix Norway, distributed by Strix Television (Norway)

Volume: 11 x 45 minutes

Airing: TV2 Norway

Rights available: All media and worldwide rights excluding Norway
