Banijay International has sold reality series Opposite Worlds to Canada’s Bell Media, which has acquired the format and the simulcast rights to the U.S. version.

Bell Media’s Space network will air Syfy’s Opposite Worlds, produced by Eyeworks USA, at the same time as the U.S. broadcast.

In addition, Bell Media has bought the local development rights to the competitive reality series, which sees players living in a house separated into two environments simulating the past and the future.

The original format aired in Chile on Canal 13.

“We’re delighted to see Canada become the next destination for Opposite Worlds,” said Sebastian Burkhardt, head of sales at Banijay International. “At the centre of this truly immersive show is a fascinating experiment that sees diverse characters, challenges and scenarios emerge, creating a ‘must-watch’ experience that audiences are able to interact with and influence across multiple platforms.”
