PARIS (AP) — France's broadcast regulator says it's taking steps to tighten safety rules for TV reality shows, following two deaths on the French version of adventure show "Survivor."
In a statement Wednesday, the Higher Broadcasting Council expressed deep sadness over the death last month of a young contestant and Monday's suicide of an on-screen doctor who treated him.
It said that it will consult with French TV stations in the coming weeks to find ways to further "respect human dignity" on such shows, and reexamine the current rules.
The council also reminded TV producers of the need to exercise "the greatest prudence when recruiting contestants."
It also expresses "wishes that participants get medical and psychological help during filming and for several months afterwards."
