Toronto prodco marblemedia has been given the greenlight for All-Round Champion, a North American adaptation of Norwegian public broadcaster NRK's Best i mest or Allround Champion.

A co-commission from TVO and Knowledge Network in Canada, and BYUtv in the U.S., the 11 x 60-minute adaptation places 10 athletes out of their element as they compete in each other's respective sports like wakeboarding, gymnastics and skateboarding. Hosted by Olympian Perdita Felicien, participants will be scored on such criteria as skill, sportsmanship and improvement, with one athlete winning the title of All-Round Champion.

Set to air in early 2020, marblemedia acquired the North American format rights to the show from Germany's Beta Film GmbH. Produced by NRK Super, the 20 x 40-minute original series picked up an International Emmy Kids Award in 2016.
