Sweden picks up The Summit

Endemol Shine / Nine developed format lands its first European adaptation.

Aussie format The Summit has its first European deal with Sweden’s TV4 commissioning a local adaptation.

The series created by Endemol Shine Australia and Nine has previously sold to CBS in the U.S.

A second season coming to Nine later this year has already been filmed in New Zealand.

A Swedish series will be produced by Banijay-owned production company, Jarowskij.

Johannes Jensen, interim CEO at Jarowskij, said, “The Summit is a great addition to our slate, with its gripping blend of adventure, high-stake competition, suspense and proven success in Australia. We are confident this adaptation will resonate strongly with audiences in Sweden, offering a thrilling and entertaining viewing experience.”

Peter Newman, CEO at Endemol Shine Australia, added, “With a second season in the works, The Summit continues to travel seamlessly across borders and is a testament to the format’s universality, adaptability and scalability. It’s been our ambition to create original formats that travel globally, and we are proud to see this IP launch in the U.S., and now Sweden, with more to come.”
