Twofour and Motion Content Group have been commissioned to produce a double re-order of reality show Weekender, totalling 20 hour-long episodes, as well as The Weekender Boat Party (w/t), a 6 x 60’ spin off series.
This new format will see favourite and new weekender reps working aboard a yacht as they tour party hotspots.
Ibiza Weekender follows a group of holiday reps on Ibiza with a fixed rig capturing the show billed as a “candid reality show with soap style storylines.”
Satmohan Panesar, Commissioner, ITV2, said: “There is only one Weekender and its ever growing young audience are in for a treat when we set sail this summer and then return to Ibiza for more high jinx with our favourite group of reps.”
Gyles Neville, Executive Producer, Twofour, added: “We are delighted with Weekender’s continuing success and growing fan base – its unique down to earth characters continue to be engaging in a way that makes us all want to be a part of their holiday season – and with a Boat Party on board, the brand is even more accessible and aspirational than ever.”
Melanie Darlaston, Executive Producer, Motion Content Group said: “With the reps taking to the high seas you can guarantee there will be plenty of mischief and drama! This new series will be a real treat for Weekender fans.”
Ibiza Weekender and The Weekender Boat Party (w/t) will be executive produced by Gyles Neville for Twofour and Melanie Darlaston for Motion Content Group. The series were ordered by commissioner Satmohan Panesar for ITV2. Air dates for all three series are to be confirmed.
The brand is represented internationally by Twofour Rights and Motion Content Group.
