Filming begins today on ABC3’s new adventure game show Bindi’s Bootcamp.
In the 26 x 25min series three teams go head-to-head in numerous challenges based on inner strength, knowledge and endurance, with a dose of “messy fun” along the way. The highest scoring teams will then assemble for season finals where one team will ultimately be crowned ‘Wildlife Warriors’
“I’m so excited to start filming and to meet all of the contestants. It will be great fun putting them through adventure challenges as well as educating and testing them on their wildlife knowledge,” said Irwin.
ABC TV’s Children’s Head of Commissioning and Development, Carla de Jong, said: “A fantastic amount of work has gone into the games, set designs and challenges for this series. We can’t wait for Bindi and the team to put the very first contestants through their paces in this action-packed, wildlife series.”
FremantleMedia’s CEO of Asia Pacific, Ian Hogg, added: “Bindi is a unique and exciting television talent and we are delighted to have created this vehicle for her with Sticky Pictures for ABC3. Bindi’s Bootcamp will be a vibrant program with a very important environmental message.”
It airs in 2012.
