The Rise And Rise Of The Hit Interactive Talent Format Continues

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.”

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).
