Dancing On Ice Lands Dutch commission

Dancing On Ice Lands Dutch commission

21st October, 2019 – Dancing On Ice has been commissioned by SBS6 in the Netherlands, following a deal with ITV Studios Global Entertainment.

The show, which starts on 7th December and will be hosted by Winston Gerschtanowitz, is produced by Talpa Productions.

Dancing On Ice returned in the UK in 2017 and a new series will air on ITV in 2020. It was subsequently commissioned by Sat.1 in Germany, where it will also return for a new series next month. 

Pascal Dalton, Vice President, Global Format Sales for ITV Studios Global Entertainment, said: “Dancing On Ice has successfully returned in both the UK and Germany, so we are excited to see it coming back on Dutch screens on SBS6.

"It remains a key returning format for us and has been commissioned in 18 territories to date, so we know it is is popular with audiences across the globe."

Glitter, grit and beauty combine in incredible performances and fierce competition, as celebrity contestants face their greatest challenge: to take on a tough, physically demanding training regime and learn to dance on ice.

Each celebrity is paired with a professional ice skater and together they perform daring, difficult routines in front of an expert judging panel. Pushed to their limits, the stars and their partners go on an emotional journey along with viewers. The audience has the power to decide who gets the ultimate accolade: a place in the final and perhaps even the title of Dancing on Ice Champion.
