Rising Star seen over Italy

An Italian broadcaster has become the latest network to order a local version of Keshet International’s well-travelled competition format Rising Star.

Mediaset Canale 5 has ordered an eight-part season of the show that will be produced by Sony Pictures Entertainment Group-owned Toro before airing in 2015.

The show allows viewers to vote on the efforts of singers in real time as they perform behind a screen, giving them immediate feedback. If the performer secures 70% of the viewers and judges’ votes, the screen rises and the performer is revealed.

Keshet International, the production and distribution arm of Israel’s Keshet Media Group, has already sold the format to broadcasters in more than 25 territories including the US (ABC), the UK (ITV), Argentina (Telefe), Brazil (Rede Globo) and Germany (RTL).

The interactive talent show was originally produced by Tedy Productions for Keshet Broadcasting’s Channel 2 and premiered on the network last September.
