Last Saturday, the adventure reality show “Hunting Season” was off to a great start on SBS6. The first episode of the series (awarded “Best YouTube Series” in the Netherlands several times) scored impressive ratings with this special version produced for TV.
With a 21.3% market share in the key demo, the show scored no less than 148% above slot average. On Amazon Prime Video, where it was released the morning after, the show already made it to the Top 10 Most watched videos.
Produced by Talpa Entertainment Productions and StukTV and distributed by Talpa Distribution, in each episode of “Hunting Season,” a duo of celebrities must flee from a team of three prison guards. These guards have one goal: to catch the fugitives within four hours. The fugitives get a 20-minute head start and must wear a transmitter that sends a GPS coordinate to the hunters, every 10 minutes. They have been given the opportunity to arrange an escape vehicle from prison and one means of transportation for the road.
