Sergei Suponev (January, 28 1963 - December, 8 2001) was a Russian TV host, most famously known for hosting game shows for children, considerably Zvyozdny Chas (Звёздный час, The Show Time) and award-winning Zov Djungley (Зов джунглей, Call of The Jungles), yet also infamous for being the permament host of Dendy: The New Reality.
Biography[edit | edit source]
Appearances on TV shows[edit | edit source]
Due to contract problems on Steepler's side, Suponev wasn't able to host The New Reality anymore, therefore, the company launched a new show called Mir Dendy, which, however, was a lackluster. Suponev appeared live on this show only once, as a host of the Killer Instinct tournament's finals. Outside the live-action TV, Suponev stars as Douglas's father in 1997's adaptation of Ray Bradbury's Dandellion Wine directed by Igor Apasyan.
