Nova – the number one broadcaster in the Czech Republic – acquired remake rights to Red Arrow International’s “Benidorm Bastards”. “Sígři ve výslužbě” (local title) will air Thursdays at 9.30pm, debuting June 27th.
“We are really happy we gained the ‘Benidorm Bastards’ license and we can bring Czech version “Sígři ve výslužbě” to our viewers. This show has been awarded with many international prizes and that’s the sign of quality, which Czech audience will appreciate for sure,” says Nova program chief Alex Ruzek.
Shakira Hoffmann, International Sales Manager CEE at Red Arrow International says: “Sales all over the world. Terrific ratings on NBC and ITV1. Multi-award Winner. Our ‘Bastards’ have an amazing track record and I am convinced our seniors will charm Czech audiences in no time.”
They’re old. They’re rude. They’re funny. International Emmy and Rose d’Or winning “Benidorm Bastards” is an outrageous hidden camera show following seven senior citizens whose mission is to roam the streets and blow the minds of as many young people as they can.
