This is how ProSieben wants to make people forget the Hollywood blockbusters

© 4zevar –

more is more ProSieben boss Daniel Rosemann announces two fundamental changes in the ProSieben program on the occasion of the Screenforce Days 2022: On Sundays, ProSieben prefers to show in-house productions instead of the usual blockbusters from Holywood from October. With the “TV total Wok World Cup” on November 12th in Winterberg, at least what is probably the biggest “TV total” event is coming back.


“Sunday evening will be the fifth evening of the week on which we show almost exclusively our own productions,” says ProSieben boss Daniel Rosemann. “We are continuing on the path we successfully embarked on four years ago: More ProSieben from ProSieben to ProSieben. No other broadcaster has turned more new programs into big favorite brands for viewers in these years.”

The station recently redesigned the evenings before the weekend (DIGITAL TELEVISION reported).

What can viewers expect on Sunday? “On Sunday evening, the viewers are in a special visual situation. The work week knocks, but you wish the weekend wasn’t over yet. We want to extend the weekend feeling with our new Sunday evening programmes,” says Daniel Rosemann. “That’s why our first four Sunday programs all have similar components: Our viewers can accompany celebrities to places of longing in the new formats on Sunday evening. And experience adventures from the sofa. You can relax and see how celebrities take on a special task and immerse yourself in exciting countries, cultures and worlds. Big pictures, exciting stories, tasks and experiences – just dream away at the end of the week.”

The new shows on Sunday at a glance:

„Country Challenge“: Which celebrity convinces the viewers?

From the TV studio in Germany out into the whole world – live on Sunday evening: In “Country Challenge” (AT), ProSieben takes viewers around the world on Sundays. They have to solve challenging tasks in different countries: For example, one task could be to have a choir of 1,000 people sing Australia’s most famous folk song “Waltzing Matilda” in front of the Opera House in Sydney. For example, someone else has to find ten bridal couples who dare to bungee jump in South Africa. Depending on the task, the celebrities naturally have a time limit for the preparation. The viewers are there live during the resolution: In each episode there are four live broadcasts in four countries. At the end of each episode, the viewers decide which celebrity convinced them the most when solving the task.

„Mission: Job Unknown“: Who will be successful as a ghost hunter?

New country, unknown job, familiar faces: The “Mission: Job Unknown” sends celebrities on a special journey in six episodes. In teams of two, they should pursue new jobs. The special thing about it: you don’t know what you’re getting yourself into. What kind of figure do Sven Hannawald and Mario Basler make as lifeguards in Mexico? How are Lucy Diakovska and Nadja Benaissa doing as ghost hunters in Ireland? How talented are Viviane Geppert and Thomas Hayo as bodyguards in the US? Do Oliver Pocher and Laura Karasek only make cheese on a cheese farm in Romania? And is there something to snack on for Verona and San Diego Pooth in a chocolate shop in Venice?

Is that enough to replace the blockbusters on Sunday evening at ProSieben?

„Local Hero“: Who can immortalize themselves in Japan?

Who will be Local Hero? Who can immortalize themselves in Scotland or Japan? Who masters the most exciting traditions and bizarre customs in a crash course? In the new show “Local Hero”, two prominent opponents immerse themselves in culture, country and people around the world and compete against each other in an extraordinary country duel. Local experts give celebrity travelers the ultimate crash course in local customs, throwing them traditional, wacky, physical and mental challenges not typically found in a travel guide. Who masters the challenges best? Who faces the traditions in countries like Scotland, Mexico or Japan? The victor gains fame, honor and a priceless immortalization in their country.

„World Most Dangerous Roads“: Who is on the road to nowhere?

Different countries, different roads. In “World Most Dangerous Roads” (WT), 16 celebrities get behind the wheel for a special adventure trip. In pairs, they try to master the most dangerous route in a country by car. Who can make it through the rain forest of Peru on the mud track? Who do the potholes in the highlands of Bolivia push to their limits? Who overcomes their fear of heights on a coastal road in Madagascar? For whom will the trip be a high-altitude flight? Who’s on the road to nowhere? On their journey, the celebrities get to know the country and its people as well as their travel partners from an unexpected side.

More self-productions and a big comeback

In addition to the new programs on Sunday, in-house productions continue to run on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. A selection: “Who is stealing the show from me?” with host Joko Winterscheidt. “Germany’s Next Top Model – by Heidi Klum”. “The Masked Singer” with Matthias Opdenhovel. “Embarrass or collect” with Elton. “The duel around the world – Team Joko versus Team Klaas” with Jeannine Michaelsen. “The Voice of Germany”. “Jenke. Crime.”. “Joko & Klaas against ProSieben”. “TV total” with Sebastian Pufpaff. “Late Night Berlin” with Klaas Heufer circulation. “Beat the Star” with Elton.

There is also a comeback of the “TV total” events on ProSieben. “On November 12, the woks will rush down the ice channel in Winterberg,” says Daniel Rosemann. In addition, the #FreeESC should also come back in 2023 – “more international than ever.”

With so much entertainment, is there still room for factual programs? “Our magazines ‘taff’ and ‘Galileo’ are our reliable lifeline on the evening before,” says Rosemann. “Factual programs are also extremely important for ProSieben in prime time. ,Zervakis & Opdenhoevel. Live.’ continues on Wednesdays. Jenke von Wilmsdorff prepares several experiments. Thilo Mischke will run in autumn with two reports in prime time. There are also new episodes of ‘Uncovered’. And, of course, in autumn we will once again be concentrating on sustainable environmental issues with ‘Green Seven’ – in prime time, of course.”
