Banijay Rights today announces new adaptations for two of its leading entertainment programmes with broadcasters in Greece, as NATPE Budapest International gets under way.
Commercial network Alpha TV has commissioned Barking Well Media to produce a first season of entertainment hit All Together Now to premiere later this year.
The deal follows the launch of hit Australian format The Hundred, which recently had its first international adaptation on Star Channel in Greece, capturing a first-episode audience share of 16%. The series is produced locally by Green Pixel.
Both agreements were negotiated by Robin Pollok, VP Sales, Africa, Middle East, Greece & Israel, Banijay Rights, who said: “Greece has long been fertile ground for entertainment programming so it’s thrilling to secure these landmark deals with the nation’s leading broadcasters ahead of NATPE Budapest International. From a fresh take on a traditional talent competition to an innovative entertainment show, we’re looking forward to working closely with our partners in Greece in the coming months.”
Originally created by Banijay UK-owned Remarkable TV for BBC1 in the UK and now selling to over 18 markets, 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 participate, 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?
The Hundred, which aired its second season on Nine Network in Australia in February, was originally created by Screentime Australia/Endemol Shine Australia and aims to find out who Australians really are. Featuring 100 everyday Australians from all over the country who are handpicked to represent their nation, ‘The Hundred’ is standing by to be polled live and give us the stories behind the stat. Each week, comedians and celebrities battle it out to prove who really knows Australia best, challenging ‘The Hundred’ and unpacking the facts along the way.
