Viacom International Studios has begun production on Ex on the Beach Brazil: Celebrs, which will premiere on MTV Brazil and across Latin America on Amazon Prime Video at the end of 2019.
Viacom International Studios (VIS) and Amazon Prime Video announced a new 12 X 60 minutes celebrity version of MTV’s hit Ex on the Beach franchise titled Ex on the Beach Brazil: Celebrs produced exclusively for MTV and Amazon Prime Video.
Set in the idyllic town of Trancoso, on the southern coast of Bahia in Brazil, the series has started production and will premiere at the end of 2019 on MTV in Brazil and across Latin America on Prime Video.
Ex on the Beach Brazil: Celebrs follows twelve celebrities as they attempt to find love on holiday. However, there will be trouble in paradise when the celebrities’ exes begin to appear one by one on the island. Ready to live their best vacation ever (or the craziest and most intense), these participants are subjected to the foul mood of the dreaded ‘Terror Tablet’, which promises to prove even more provocative and challenging than ever before.
The hand-selected cast is about to experience intense and unforgettable moments. The idea is to enjoy yourself as if there is no tomorrow, or decide if love with their ex can be reignited. One thing is for sure—this season will be full of adventure and fun.
Featuring guest appearances by Brazilian singer and songwriter Pabllo Vittar, and Brazilian musical artist Vitor Kley, this edition promises to be even more explosive and unforgettable than ever before!
“Ex on the Beach is a hugely successful international MTV format with local hit versions made all around the world. I am thrilled to be working with Amazon Prime Video to add even more buzz to this special edition made in Brazil with local celebrities,“ said Tiago Worcman, Senior Vice President, MTV in Latin America.
“Prime Video is focused on seeking out and bringing customers across Latin America new, compelling and entertaining content for a wide range of audiences,” said Pablo Iacoviello, Latin America head of content for Amazon Prime Video.
“Ex on the Beach is a great series that has created a following of fans everywhere it has launched, and we’re excited to see our customers join this fan base when the series premieres on Prime Video later this year.”

Earlier this month, MTV International also commissioned a new celebrity version titled Celebrity Ex on the Beach, which will be produced by Whizz Kid Entertainment and will air next year across MTV’s network of international channels spanning 180 countries.
