Destination X is BBC One

The BBC and NBC have revealed that Twofour will produce both versions of the hit adventure reality competition series “Destination X” for the US and UK…

The news comes following NBC’s greenlight of the series. The format, based on the award-winning Belgian original, will combine ‘spectacular adventure travel’ and ‘immersive gameplay with the ultimate guessing game’. Destination X marks the second commission between NBC and the BBC following the success of The Traitors.

Kate Phillips, Director of Unscripted at the BBC:

“Following the huge success of The Traitors, we’re really pleased to be partnering once again with NBC on this brilliant new format. The tender process was extremely competitive, but Twofour’s innovative and creative vision for the show means that we know we have the perfect producers to take us on this exciting journey. We can’t wait to get on board the Destination X bus and bring this exciting new show to a BBC audience.”

Merging fantasy with reality in this larger-than-life adventure competition series, viewers will follow contestants as they embark on the road trip of a lifetime but have no idea of their location. In order to win, they must figure out their mystery locations. Once they’re on the blacked-out Destination X bus, the journey transforms into a real-life board game, with challenges designed to offer clever clues as to their location, along with a few misdirects to keep them guessing.

At the end of each episode, the contestant who places an X on a map furthest from the actual location packs their bags. The first participant to reach Destination X will be crowned the winner. With high stakes and mind-blowing, spectacular gameplay, the series will keep viewers engaged and playing along on all screens.

The series is based on the Belgian format created by Geronimo and distributed globally by Be-Entertainment. “Destination X “is one of the fastest-selling unscripted formats and has won several awards, including a Rose d’Or for best Competition Reality, as well as Best Competition Reality Format and Best Multi-Platform Format by C21.

Production on Destination X will begin later this year. Both the US and UK versions of the series will be filmed in tandem, with expectations to launch in 2025 across NBC and BBC One respectively.

The NBC version will be co-produced with Universal Television Alternative Studio, a division of Universal Studio Group.
