Banijay Belgium to Make The Flemish Audience Starstruck

29 November, 2023

Media and entertainment powerhouse, Banijay today announces Banijay Belgium will produce Starstruck for VTM. This Flemish adaptation is the fifth version of the hit studio entertainment format created by Remarkable Entertainment (part of Banijay UK).

Three times the fun, talent, and reveals, Starstruck welcomes a trio of everyday people with exceptional talent to the stage as they team up and transform into the same iconic star. Rival groups battle it out to prove why the audience and expert judges should vote them the winning team. However, each performer must stand out as only one contestant can go through to the grand final and take their shot at winning the cash prize.

Originally created by Remarkable Entertainment, this commission marks the fifth adaptation, having already aired in territories including the UK, where Starstruck has enjoyed two seasons on ITV and ITVX, Chile, Bulgaria and Denmark, where it repeatedly won its slot across all demographics when it aired earlier this year.

Isabelle Dams, Managing Director of Banijay Belgium says: “With an incredible set, unbelievable transformations, and raw talent, Starstruck is the perfect show to bring multiple ages together. I am looking forward to the audience seeing the trios perform iconic songs from a range of eras and genres. ”

Lucas Green, Chief Content Officer, Operations at Banijay adds:Starstruck is a party of high-energy, spectacular shiny-floor entertainment. First airing in 2022, the fact it has sold to five territories is testament to the strength of the format, and its adaptability.”

Banijay Belgium is a leading production company whose slate includes high-quality television in nearly every genre. Its non-scripted offering includes Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Hunted, and Fear Factor amongst others.
