Afghanistan is the latest country to get a local adaptation of the Got Talent franchise.
FremantleMedia andSyco Entertainment will launch Afghanistan’s Got Talent on Kabul-based channel 1TV Media this fall, making it the 55th international version of the hit reality competition format.
According to British media reports, the judging panel will likely comprise Afghan celebrities, and British troops stationed in the war-torn country may be allowed to audition.
Earlier this year, Rede Record began airing Brazil’s Got Talent, while Kazakhstan’s Got Talent premiered on Kazakhstan 1. The longest-running version of the format, America’s Got Talent, is in its eighth season and has been sold to 180 countries. Britain’s Got Talent (pictured above) just wrapped its seventh season.
