Along with the Netherlands, Belgium, Australia, the U.S., and the Middle East, Talpa Studios' Million Dollar Island marks its next territory in Romania. The groundbreaking adventure show was developed through a creative partnership with Monday Media. After a successful second season in the Netherlands on SBS6 and Amazon Prime, the trailblazing show has been commissioned by Kanal D and will be produced in-house. The casting has already started and thousands of applicants have signed up to participate in this intense competition. The show - which is called ‘Insula de 1 milion’ in Romania - is set to air on Kanal D.
Sebastian van Barneveld, Director Global Distribution at Talpa Studios: "We are very excited about Million Dollar Island reaching Romania through Kanal D. This format caters to the growing need for exciting adventure reality, and is continually evolving and adapting with each new local version.”
About Million Dollar Island
Million Dollar Island is a groundbreaking social experiment where one hundred people try to stay on a remote desert island for two months for a chance at winning one million dollars. Surviving the harsh conditions with limited means isn't the only challenge. Each contestant starts the adventure with a bracelet worth 10.000 dollars. While they're on the island, contestants can gain and lose bracelets by competing in various games. They can also receive bracelets from other contestants. When someone gives up and decides to leave the island, they must give their bracelet(s) to a contestant who stays behind. On this show, alliances mean everything, and friendships are worth a fortune. Some contestants will become richer by winning games and inheriting bracelets, while those who lose and fail to collect new bracelets must eventually go home. By the last day, only a few contestants are left on the island. In a thrilling finale, they'll each get their chance to cash in their bracelets in an exciting test of nerves. However, they can also lose everything at the last minute...
