Twofour Set to Produce "Destination X" for NBC and BBC

In an exciting development, the BBC and NBC have announced that Twofour will produce both the US and UK versions of the hit adventure reality competition series "Destination X." This decision follows NBC's green light of the series, set to combine thrilling adventure travel with immersive gameplay and a tantalizing guessing game element.

Production on "Destination X" is slated to commence later this year, with both US and UK versions being filmed concurrently. The series is expected to debut in 2025 across NBC and BBC One & iPlayer, respectively.

Corie Henson, Executive Vice President of Unscripted Programming at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, expressed enthusiasm for the project, stating, "Destination X is one of the most unique and innovative formats we've seen in a long time. This show is an epic international travel adventure combined with the ultimate guessing game. Even if you've never been on a plane, you can play along!"

Kate Phillips, Director of Unscripted at the BBC, echoed the sentiment, expressing delight in partnering with NBC once again and lauding Twofour's creative vision for the show. Phillips stated, "We can't wait to get on board the Destination X bus and bring this exciting new show to a BBC audience."

Toby Gorman, President of Universal Television Alternative Studio, highlighted the collaborative effort, affirming, "We're thrilled to bring NBC their first travel competition series and can't wait for audiences to tune in for this adventure."

"Destination X" promises to merge fantasy with reality, as contestants embark on a journey of a lifetime without knowledge of their location. Through a series of challenges and clues, participants must decipher their mystery destinations, with the furthest off the mark facing elimination.

Dan Adamson, Managing Director of Twofour, expressed pride in securing the opportunity to produce this "incredible adventure format" and acknowledged the talent and dedication of the production team.

With high stakes and mind-bending gameplay, "Destination X" is poised to captivate audiences across screens, offering a thrilling viewing experience for fans of adventure and competition alike.

As excitement mounts for the series premiere, details regarding the host are yet to be announced. Stay tuned as "Destination X" embarks on its journey to become the next television sensation.
