Sat.1 leaves its towel on Naked Beach
German broadcaster Sat.1 has commissioned a local version of UK format Naked Beach.
Keshet-owned German prodco Tresor TV will produce a 4×70’ version of the show in which people with body confidence issues are flown to a sunny beach where they are met by naked hosts who coach them to change the way they think about themselves.
The show was originally created by Argonon-owned Barefaced TV for Channel 4 in the UK and tests the theory of Dr Keon West of Goldsmiths’ University that our body image and self-esteem will improve if we see more ‘normal’ naked bodies as opposed to media-perfect ones.
Magnify Media distributes the format globally and has sealed the deal with Sat.1 where the show will air under the title No Body Is Perfect – Das Nacktexperiment.
The deal was brokered by Magnify Media’s Cecilia Ingebrigtsen.
