Banijay today announces a first series deal for entertainment hit, All Together Now, in Portugal.
Shine Iberia Portugal, Banijay Iberia company, has been commissioned by TVI to produce a local version of the popular singing format. Presented by Cristina Ferreira, the prime-time series is currently in production under Covid-19 guidelines and is scheduled to debut early 2021.
Including Portugal, All Together Now has now sold to 15 markets, with eight productions broadcasting this year. The format is currently airing a third run in Italy and is also on in Finland, where the debut series launched last month with a 24.3% market share.
The news comes as Endemol Shine Brasil prepares for tonight’s International Emmy Awards where its local version of the format, titled Canta Comigo has been nominated in the Non-Scripted Entertainment category.
Lucas Green, Global Head of Content Operations, Creative Networks at Banijay says; “This format delivers unforgettable performances, emotional reactions and loads of humour to bring the entire family together. The fun party atmosphere is just what viewers need right now and we are proud to produce the show using our tried and tested Coved- 19 protocols.”
All Together Now sees a range of talented vocalists (solos and groups) perform in front of The 100, an audience of great singers with big voices and even bigger opinions.
If any of The 100 like what they hear, they can stand up, join in and sing along. The greater the number that join in, the higher the act’s score. At the end of the series, one act will walk away with a major cash prize. The question is, who can get The 100 on their feet and singing along?
