Music entertainment format On Stage With My Idol has been sold to Pan-Arabian Lebanon-based broadcaster Al Jadeed (New TV) by Banijay International.

The format, created by Banijay Productions France and originally titled Rendez-Vous avec Mon Idol for TF1 (pictured), will be produced locally by Studiovision and will air early 2012.

In the 26-episode, one-hour series, contestants are selected to sing a duet with their idol.

“We’re very pleased to announce the sale of another great Banijay Group format to the Middle East,” said Karoline Spodsberg, managing director, Banijay International. “On Stage With My Idol joins several shows from the Banijay International catalog which have aired in the Middle East this year, including Taratata, The People’s Quiz and IF.”
