The Rise And Rise Of The Hit Interactive Talent Format Continues
Keshet International’s ground-breaking interactive singing talent show format RISING STAR has been snapped up by Turkey’s Acun Medya (The Voice, Survivor, Turkey’s Got Talent). It will produce the series in house.
Acun Ilıcalı, CEO at Acun Medya, said, “At Acun Medya, we’re very happy to have such an innovative and exciting format as RISING STAR. We believe RISING STAR’s technological twist is going to begin a new era in television where the audience has real-time control over the course of live programmes.”
Keren Shahar, Head of Distribution and Acquisitions, Keshet International, said, “We’re delighted to announce another key sale for RISING STAR in the buoyant Turkish market. With several international series now in production, the excitement has reached ‘fever pitch’ and we are thrilled to see the show coming to life all over the world. I can’t wait for our new viewers to experience the true exhilaration of this format.”
Since its launch at MIPCOM 2013, RISING STAR has been picked up by more than 20 broadcasters and has quickly become an international hit. Keshet International has struck deals in territories including the US (ABC), UK (ITV), Spain (Atresmedia), Italy (Toro), France (M6 Group) Russia (Rossiya1), Germany (RTL), the Nordics (Nordisk), Hungary (TV2), and most recently Brazil (Rede Globo) and Portugal (TVI). Interest in the format continues to grow worldwide following unprecedented ratings for the show’s original series in Israel, the season finale of which peaked with a 58% share of the total domestic audience – attracting more viewers than the country’s election night!
