LA-based digital talent network and entertainment studio Collab has launched its international formats business with a slate of Korean TV series.

The company will develop international versions of competition series 2 Days & 1 Night (pictured) and docuseries Safety First – both of which were originally produced by the Korean Broadcasting System – for the North and South American territories.

An award-winning competition series, 2 Days & 1 Night features some of South Korea’s biggest celebrities as they’re pitted against one another in various challenges in remote locales across the country.

Safety First, meanwhile, explores dangerous situations that people face in their everyday lives, and uses experiments to show viewers what not to do in a given circumstance.

Ryan Slattery, Charlie Faith, Eugene Choi, James McFadden and Tyler McFadden will executive produce both series for Collab.  

Collab most recently exec produced an unscripted original series with Spotify and the NFL Players Association entitled Trading Playlists.

“We have had a lot of success recently building our linear and digital unscripted business,” said Ryan Slattery, Collab’s VP of production and development. “Acquiring international IP is the natural next step for Collab, and we are excited to put our unique stamp on these proven formats.”
