Next week Sunrise is undertaking a huge task 5 countries in 5 days.
Kochie, Sam, Nat, Beretts and Eddy will begin the week broadcasting in black tie from the home of excess, Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. The hosts and crew, totalling 25 all up, will hit the road when the show wraps each day. Tuesday’s stop is London in the UK, where we’ll do the show from the banks of the Thames overlooking Tower Bridge. On Wednesday we head to the US for a whirlwind visit to the city that never sleeps, New York – a fitting destination for the one place we won’t even have time to check into a hotel! Straight after that it’s on to the spectacular Niagara Falls in Canada for Thursday’s show. Then Friday, for the final whistle stop on the Sunrise world tour, we host the ultimate party from Cancun, Mexico.
“No other TV show has ever attempted this before, and there’s probably a reason,” said Sunrise executive producer Michael Pell. “Broadcasting three hours live from five countries in five days represents our biggest logistical challenge yet. If we can pull it off, it will make history and provide a spectacular week of viewing.”
And on the biggest week in Sunrise history, we’ve assembled the biggest set of stars to take part in our adventure, including Ed Sheeran, Phil Collins, Adam Lambert and Seal. But that’s just the beginning – we’re keeping a tight lid on our full all-star line-up!
This will be a gruelling challenge for the team, and our cameras will capture every moment of drama, tears and tantrums in a behind-the-scenes style reality show that will air each day on Sunrise. Viewers will be able to see everything that happens on the road – the good, the bad and the ugly!
Sunrise airs 6am weekdays on Seven
