Insight TV Launches Second Series of Intrepid Adventure Reality Show THRU


Insight TV, the world’s leading 4K UHD HDR broadcaster and producer of native UHD content, has announced the launch date and exciting new production details for the second series of its eagerly anticipated reality show, THRU. The 8 x 44-minute series, which sees two teams of nine brave competitors trek through highly challenging terrain following a straight line from point-A-to-point-B, will air on Insight TV and Insight.TV on 11th December 2018.

Following the Blue Team’s series one victory in Greece, which saw Daniel and Ionut win more than twenty thousand euros in prize money, this year’s challenge takes place in Spain, in the southern region of Andalusia. Two teams of strong, fit and super ambitious contestants from all corners of the world including: the US, India, Germany, Netherlands, UK and South Korea, are all set for their adventure, which sees them travel over, under or through all ‘natural’ obstacles. The teams must not deviate from the predetermined route, whether that means they’re travelling through a river, a castle, a mountain or a swamp, for instance. The routes will also pass through several private properties (houses and companies), which means the teams will have to use their best negotiation skills so the locals will provide the permission required to continue.

The show features several fitness influencers including Hugh Sunhong from Seoul, Ben Mudge from Belfast and Lienke de Jong from Amsterdam. It’s hosted by Brendan Moar who takes teams to surprising locations to begin their new THRU battles. In every episode the teams compete along a straight track that is only 10 meters wide whilst carrying their backpack, which contains their share of the team’s cash: a total of fifty thousand euros. During the race, tension rises when the teams discover that not only must they eliminate their team members, but they also have to face some big suprises that Brendan has in store, such as tougher tracks and some additional secret hot and tricky Spanish ingredients. Which team will make the least mistakes along the track and win the big money prize?

“We’re really excited to see the reaction to the new series of THRU, which will kick off the festive season with a bang,” says Arun Maljaars, Director Content & Channels at Insight TV. “This series will be bigger and better with more prize money and a lot more surprises that even the fittest influencers will find challenging. The mental and physical tension that the series brings will guarantee a breathtaking and gripping finale in Malaga. It’s definitely one you don’t want to miss!”
