Jack Osbourne Picks Up 2nd Extreme Adventure Series (2/15/2006)

UK distributor Minotaur has picked up a second extreme-adventure factual entertainment series featuring Ozzy Osbourne's offspring Jack, produced once again by UK indie Ginger Productions.

Jack Osbourne's Hard Way Round (working title), which will officially launch at MipTV, has already been pre-sold into six territories and is currently in production for the UK's ITV1 and ITV2. Others on board the four-part series include TV2 (Denmark), Annaney (Israel), MNET/GO (South Africa), Joongang Broadcasting Corp/Q-Channel (Korea), and Chum Television's Razor (Canada).

The second series follows the newly slimmed down and toned up Osbourne as he aims to circumnavigate the world in four months by taking part in a variety of extreme adventure challenges. Among the trials is a 140-mile race on foot across the Sahara Desert in sweltering temperatures; kayaking the English Channel; and attempting the world's tallest bungy jump, at Bloukrans Bridge in South Africa.

Ginger Productions' first Osbourne-fronted series was last year's Adrenaline Rush, which has now been sold to 17 territories.

Minotaur VP Sarah Tong put part of the attraction of the first series down to Osbourne's 'flabby boy to toned man' transformation.

"It was compelling viewing and I'm confident that broadcasters will be just as attracted to the new series, which promises even more high drama, breathtaking global scenery and nerve-jangling extreme sports," said Tong.
