Oliver Pocher and his father front Pocher & Papa auf Reisen
German broadcaster RTL has commissioned a local version of an NBCUniversal format in which famous people take trips around the world with their parents.
The German version, Pocher & Papa auf Reisen, will be fronted by local actor and comedian Oliver Pocher and his father. The comic factual two-parter airs on RTL on June 19 and 26 at 20.15.
The two episodes see the pair travelling the Far East and US, sampling local food and customs and taking part in a variety of unusual and daring activities.
Banijay Productions Germany is making the new version, which is based on the UK format 50 Ways To Kill Your Mammy.
The original was commissioned by Sky1 in the UK, created and produced by Brown Bread Films and Burning Bright Productions. NBCUniversal Formats distributes the show globally.
