    In 2023, Mediaweek spoke with Paramount ANZ’s chief sales officer Rod Prosser and head of lifestyle programming Tamara Simoneau about bringing Gladiators back in all its shiny, 90s-inspired glory.

    Between the recent love for all things 90s and the need to bring an alternative to Summer programming, Prosser said that “now is the perfect time” to bring the Gladiators format back to Aussie screens. 

    We are really capitalising on the 90s nostalgia, which is a TV trend at the minute. We’ve really seen, particularly with the launch of our FAST offering, a whole new wave of demographics and generations coming back into TV. Also, this particular format has got legacy and history with a large cohort of people.

    “Really importantly, it’s a solid alternative to the summer of sport that’s on the other networks. Sport always does well, but we have a really solid competitor with this particular format. We know from I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! that when we have good, fun, family-friendly content as an alternative, people come in droves.”

    Gladiators is made for Network 10 by Warner Bros. International Television Production and executive produced by Johnny C. Ferraro and Barry Poznick. The original Gladiators series was created by Johnny C. Ferraro and Dan Carr and produced in association with Flor-Jon Films. Gladiators is distributed by Amazon MGM Studios Distribution.
