Stk#111412 Splatalot will air on YTV in Canada, BBC in the U.K. and ABC in Australia with 26 episodes in the series. Three versions will be filmed and customized for the participating countries. Two hosts will be selected from all three countries’ places to comment on the contestants’ wipeouts and successes. “We’re very excited to be working with our longtime partner, Corus Entertainment, as well as with our new partners at the BBC and ABC, on this first-time multi-broadcaster collaboration,” said Mr. Hornburg. Each episode will feature a different group of 12 teen contestants seeking to come out on top of the competition. Contestants are dubbed Attackers, they will compete against each other in three different rounds: Cross the Moat, Storm the Castle and Steal the Crown. Six international, medieval-themes gladiators, The Defenders of Splatalot, will be doing everything in their power to protect the castle from the contestants- Attackers. “What is kind of unique about our show as it relates to the kid audience is the fact that there is a lot of physical comedy involving real kids who can compete for prizes on a challenge course that is really the biggest of its kind in Canada,” said Mr. Hornburg. According to Mr. Hornburg, the obstacle course is “pretty big.” In its entirety it stands just under four stories high and covers roughly 200 square feet. The production crew is currently in the process of designing and building all the props and obstacles. Participants will be running into some really abstract obstacles on this course. “We’d like for it to be a surprise, but what I can “ Party time! • From page A1 pieces of candy over fifty feet into the air, and children, and adults for that matter, are welcome to scavenge the flavourful shrapnel.
