Last year I got to work alongside an amazing team at Endelmol Shine. Our Head Of Department Warrick Brown did an amazing job of navigating the difficult shoot that had many layers of logistics, safety and weather… Plenty of weather!!! I can not wait to sit down and watch this one as it was filmed in our backyard in the deep South.
Australian actor and Hollywood star Jai Courtney is set to host Channel 9’s new adventure program, The Summit. Courtney, known for his roles in The Suicide Squad, Terminator Genisys, and The Divergent Series, is one of Australia’s most versatile actors, with a career spanning more than 15 years. The Summit, set in New Zealand’s South Island, is an epic action-adventure series that takes place in one of the most beautiful locations on Earth, and serves as the backdrop for some of the world’s biggest movie franchises. The show will see Courtney lead 14 strangers on a journey to reach the peak of a distant mountain in just 14 days, with each contestant carrying an equal share of one million dollars in their backpacks. The team will have to work together to overcome dangerous terrain, wild weather conditions, and adrenaline-charged challenges blocking their path to the mountain’s summit. Morals will be tested, physical limits will be pushed, and bonds will be broken in this marathon of endurance, survival, and greed. The ultimate prize is a massive amount of cash, and only those who reach the summit in time will have a chance to claim it. The Summit is a prime-time event series produced by Endemol Shine Australia, a Banijay company, and is set to be filled with cliff-hangers. This blockbuster challenge will push contestants to their limits, both physically and mentally, and viewers will be on the edge of their seats to see who will walk away with the cash bulging in their backpacks. Welcome to The Summit, where getting up is just the beginning.
