The Spanish network is planning a strong start for the 2017/2018 season with the adaptation of three international formats like Life Stripped Bare and Back in Time for Dinner, alongside the premiere of three new originals. Here are all the details.
This past Tuesday, the main network from Atresmedia Group launched its main news for the upcoming 2017/2018 television season, and it's gearing up for a strong start.
With three new entertainment shows that come as adaptations of successful international formats, and three new scripted originals, Antena 3 stands on a privileged position to compete against its closest rival Telecinco.
International Entertainment Formats
The network has showed some love to entertainment shows like El hormiguero 3.0 and Your Face Sounds Familiar; but now it appears entertainment formats will continues to have a privileged sport on Antena 3 primetime.
The network has announced its bulking up its entertainment offering with the adaptation of three new international formats that come with excellent credentials. These are Life Stripped Bare, Back in Time for Dinner and Eso que te ahorras.
Life Stripped Bare
Under the local working title El Contenedor, the international format is landing TV as the second nudist show in Spain after Adam and Eve (Cuatro, Mediaset). Shine Iberia will produce for Antena 3.
Life Stripped Bare originally premiered back in 2015 in Denmark on DR3 and was adapted in the UK by Channel 4 as the first non-materialistic reality show in the history of TV.
On it, all contestants will be sent to an entirely bare house, completely deprived of their material possessions, which will be stored outside on a container. Every day, contestants will be able to get something back by valuing what's a necessity and what isn’t. However, they won't be able to buy or exchange anything except for food, candles or toilet paper.
Back in Time for Dinner
Warner Bros ITVP-España will be adapting this format, which was broadcasted successfully in the UK by BBC2, under the title Me cambio de década.
The original format, produced by Wall to Wall, centers on a family trying foods from different time periods, and also experiencing what it was like to live then. The Antena 3 adaptation will use the same idea and take a local family away from modern comforts and into the last decades in the country's history, experiencing the time as if they were truly in it.
Eso que te ahorras
The final format comes from production company Verte and takes reporting down to earth as presenter Pedro García Aguado introduces different reports that aim to offer advice to viewers to save money on their bills.
New Original Series
*The Cathedral of the Sea
Continuing to position the Atremsedia seal of quality, Antena 3 is presenting three new original shows that will join The Paper House and season four and Down There. The shows include The Cathedral of the Sea, an adaptation of the novel of the same name by ldefonso Falcones produced by Diagonal TV and defined as the most ambitious series for Atresmedia yet; Times of War, and Atresmedia and Bambú Producciones production for primetime; and The Incident, a Boomerang TV production that combines a thrilling mystery with sci-fi.
To be the link between the main players in the entertainment industry is not an easy task. It means creating a platform aimed at a group of highly informed and demanding professionals. But with great effort and commitment, we did it.
