Coming soon: Revolution in Russian! Channel 1, first among Russia’s country-wide channels, just acquired the hit dance competition format, which is also being versioned by broadcasters in France, Spain and Lithuania.
A Fair-Play and Québecor Contenu creation, the show’s stand-out feature is the “Revolution Moment”, a 360-degree freeze frame, captured with a 120-camera rig, and featuring one particularly unique instant in each dance number.
“After conquering French Canada, this highly accessible format has shown it can attract wide audiences and knows no borders! Lithuania has already fallen in love with it and now, Russia!”, gushes Fair-Play president Guy Villeneuve.
“Once again, our industry people in Quebec have demonstrated the depth of their creative talent and their ability to stand out at a global level,” says Ginette Viens, vice-president, Brand Management and Content for Québecor Contenu.
At the time of publication, three weeks into its second season, Revolution is showing an average of more than 1.3 million viewers, a result consistent with the success of the first season, which reached the same audience, with a 35% market share.
Hosted with a unique personal touch by French Canada star Sarah-Jeanne Labrosse, the dance competition is once more playing out under the expert tutelage of the Revolution Dance Masters: world-famous ballroom virtuoso Jean-Marc Généreux, global hip-hop phenom Les Twins, and contemporary dancer and choreographer Lydia Bouchard, of Cirque du Soleil fame.
