Israeli’s Rising Star introduced to UK market

Keshet International, the global distribution and production arm of Keshet Media Group, has closed a deal for its hit talent show RISING STAR with ITV. 

British broadcaster, ITV, has secured the rights to bring Keshet’s RISING STAR to UK audiences. The format will be co-produced by ITV Studios and Keshet International UK. The acquisition follows on from the success of the format following its unveiling at MIPCOM earlier this year which has already resulted in deals with channels and producers in Hungary (TV2), Italy (Toro), France (M6 Group), Russia (Rossiya1), Germany (RTL) and the Nordics (Nordisk) and most recently ABC beating out several competitors for the U.S. market.

“ITV’s track record in launching globally successful music and talent shows makes it the natural UK home for the groundbreaking Rising Star. The UK’s leading commercial network joins a large cast of leading broadcasters to come on board, and we look forward to working with its brilliant team to bring this interactive live experience to British audiences”, said Alon Shtruzman, Managing Director, Keshet International.

ITV’s Director of Entertainment and Comedy, Elaine Bedell said, “It’s rare that you find a genuinely innovative new entertainment format – but Keshet have come up with one and I’m very pleased that it will now be on ITV.  The bold real- time voting element means that viewers votes control every twist and turn of the live programme – and that makes for an incredibly dramatic, emotional and exciting show.”
