Weekender is constructed reality format that provides an insight into the lives of holiday reps working in two of the most lively holiday destinations, and the groups of guest who come to stay with them.

Each series is based within a hotel, and based upon an island (in the UK version: Majorca or Ibiza), and follows every move of a cast of colourful holiday reps and their guests. 

Each brand new season brings new and familiar faces, and soap opera storylines as they navigate their way around a summer of hopes, dreams, loves and fears. Captured through fly on the wall filming techniques and combined with a blend of real-time constructed storytelling, it has become one of today's most successful reality shows.
