For 12 weeks on the ocean shore 8 divorced couples will pass through 25 tests for extreme proximity. Ex-spouses will have to forget about past offenses, overcome differences and unite for the sake of a common goal.
At stake – 10 MILLION RUBLES, which can get to the most important person in their life – a child.
This is a unique experiment: couples specially gathered on one island so that they could finally figure out, away from home, what was a mistake: their marriage or divorce.
– “Our project is an instructive story both for me and for those who will watch it,” says presenter Agnia Ditkovskite. – First of all, because it reminds us of the main task of parents – to learn how to negotiate, relax and work together. For example, Alexey and I had already become allies before this reality.
And all this for the sake of our son Fedor.
“Allies” were the first reality show in the career of an actress, therefore, in preparation for the shooting, she turned to the coach for help. According to Agnes, she has not invested so much energy in any project: “It turned out that shooting in the sun is much more difficult than in the cold.
Yes, and the genre of “reality” implies that you are constantly in the frame with the participants. ” The actress came to the island with her son and nanny, and later her ex-husband, actor Alexei Chadov, looked after the child, who flew in to support his ex-wife and tell the heroes of the show about his experience.
– In fact, I really understand the participants: Agniya and I went through all this ourselves, ”co-host Alexei Chadov shares. – We had a joint path with a length of 10 years, and during that time we parted, and converged, and at some point understood. that we destroy each other. After the divorce, it took me two years to think over everything and learn how to manage my emotions.
But now we are in the status of allies, because we can communicate openly, make friends, and most importantly, move on and continue our common cause – raising a son. I sincerely wish the heroes of the project to quickly go through this difficult, but very important and necessary period, in order to finally come to the same understanding.
Every week, the heroes of the project were expected to be exhausting tests, the most difficult of which was to endure each other. Together they passed contests with the eating of insects, the unexpected arrival of mother-in-law and even the “age” test. Thus, in one of the issues, participants were aged for 40 years with the help of the most complex 5-hour makeup.
And at the end of each release of the pair, the losers in the contests were nominated for elimination, and their fate was decided by the other participants. And only two of the most persistent duet in the final battled for a big cash prize.
And he, according to the head of the entertainment direction of the STS channel Ksenia Bugrimova, for the first time in the history of such shows will go not to those who won it, but to those for whom the characters passed all the tests.
During the filming, the couple lived in a luxury villa with 14 cameras at gunpoint. A team of 120 crew members, including local specialists, worked with them daily.
“Allies” is the first Russian adaptation of the Extra Mile format of the Israeli company Studio Glam, which has 23 original shows, shown in 28 countries. Reality about divorced couples has already been seen in Israel and Denmark, in addition, the project is preparing to launch in Canada, China, Chile, Spain, Greece and other countries.
