"Survivor" USA 15th Anniversary (31st May 2015)

With “Survivor” USA continuing to win it’s slot every week, and build on it’s success, it doesn’t seem possible that 15 years have flown by since it’s debut on the TV screens of American viewers. 15 years ago on the 31st May 2000, the “Survivor” format launched in the USA following it’s success in European markets. Charlie Parsons remembers that moment well;

“I knew it was going to be a hit but I had no idea it would become such an enormous international success and would change the face of television. Everybody who worked on the development of the series and the delivery of the first production in Sweden, and the delivery of the first American production should be very proud of their achievements: it’s pretty rare to be part of a process that literally invented a new genre!”
