INSIGHT TV Broadcasts 4K UHD Production "Living Stone"
Produced in partnership with Dutch television production company Strix Television, Living Stone takes five couples on a harrowing, life-changing adventure through Botswana’s beautiful landscape. Contestants hike through the toughest terrains and are constantly faced with the forces of nature: heavy thunderstorms, unbearable heat and daily encounters with wild animals. Throughout the show, they take part in brutal games to compete to stay together as a couple. Losing a game could mean losing their partner, ending up in the remote exile camp or worse, leaving the competition. After eight exhausting treks two couples’ face-off in a thrilling Grand Finale.
“This show not only tests the individual physical and mental strength of these contestants it also tests how they cope in extreme conditions as a couple,” explains Arun Maljaars, Global Content Strategy Manager, INSIGHT TV. As viewers follow their adventures through Botswana’s beautiful and often desolate landscape they get to experience the excitement, the fear and the rewards that each couple faces. Shot in the highest quality 4K UHD this show is not only action packed it’s visually stunning.”

I am confident there will be a strong international appetite for both the finished program and format.”
