The 4KUNIVERSE, a 4K Ultra HD general entertainment channel, is teaming with Suzanne Down Productions and Cirque Berzerk Productions for live and taped 4K Cirque Berzerk specials in 2017.

cirque berzerkConceived in the grey cement sprawl of industrial downtown Los Angeles and birthed in the dust and glitter of Burning Man, Cirque Berzerk has been described by the LA Times as “the sort of phantasmagoric spectacle Tim Burton would dream up, if he quit filmmaking to join the circus”. Cirque Berzerk’s first theatrical production, entitled Beneath, marries French burlesque, Sweeney Todd, Cirque du Soleil and PT Barnum.

The TV programme showcases these circus events, and incorporates make-up artistry, set design and aerobatics. It also shows circus participants, including exotic feathered bird girls, and glam rock-inspired looks from the theatrical and special event entertainment productions. The shows will be filmed with 4K HDR cameras and will be exclusively on 4KUNIVERSE’s linear and subscription-on-demand (SVOD) offering.

“With 4KUNIVERSE currently live on SES’s satellite covering North America, it is our focus to add the very best 4K content, empowering cable/telcos to satisfy their millions of customers who currently own a 4K TV set,” said 4KUNIVERSE founder and CEO, Matthew Mancinelli. “The Cirque Berzerk 4K specials add primetime programming that the whole family can enjoy.”
