Big Brother 6 Greece -- Cancelled
« on: September 10, 2011, 01:51:50 PM »
This is from June 27, 2011
from http://www.newsbeast.gr/media/arthro/191548/o-alpha-edeixe-kokkini-karta-sto-big-brother-2/



Translation:

Alpha showed a "red" card to Big Brother 2  [2 probably because it would be the 2nd season on that channel].

The channel "freezes" the project and postpones the return of some shows.

The Alpha producers showed a red card to Big Brother 2, who finally decided not to include it in the new season's programming.

Even though they were planning the return of Big Brother next October [of 2011], they decided not to include the reality show in the new season.

The reason is that it is an expensive production [!!!] with no much hope for recovering expenses.

[A couple more shows listed as cancelled or postponed].


How incompetent can a production team be to consider Big Brother as expensive to produce?

I hope it comes back next year.

It's a shame, the Greeks had a pretty impressive season last year.

The show was produced by a private channel that's a subsidiary of a major German TV production company - don't remember the name right now. It's unlikely that the production cost was a factor in cancelling this season.

Anyhow, if someone can recommend an easy to use and efficient subtitle creation program, I may take the time to sub Season 5 in English for the pleasure of the hard core BB fans on this site :)

I've downloaded a few subtitle programs already and tried them out but they all have problems... they crash, they are not easy to use, not easy to sync subtitles to the video, etc.

I'll keep making an effort, but please feel free to suggest subtitle creation utilities if you know of any. More importantly, if anyone has or knows of archived seasons of BB GR I would appreciate information about them.

Thank you. :)

Not the first time cost has forced the cancellation of BB - Endemol is known to have priced itself out of countries before.

With Portugal/Netherlands and Sweden/Norway though sharing houses to produce their own separate seasons I think that is going to become much more common place with future BB's, especially as having global bases for their big shows is pretty much Endemol's strategy at the moment.

Also the only Ecuador season of BB was done outside that country, the House used was the House located in Argentina.
:) Live happy every day!!! <3

Awww I'm really sad that Greece has cancelled BB6. I really liked the fifth edition. :'(
