ITV Studios has revealed a raft of local format adaptations and the launch of The Voice All Stars during a press breakfast today (Sept. 15) to kick off its inaugural Fall Festival.

Atresmedia in Spain commissioned Love Island, the first Spanish-language version of the reality competition format, to be produced by ITV Studios’ production partner Boomerang.

Digital Play in Nigeria also acquired the format, marking its first foray into Africa. The first season will air on TVC for terrestrial and on 9 Vision Media for digital.

With these deals, ITV Studios has launched 17 versions of Love Island.

In other news, ITV Studios has launched The Voice All Stars to mark the 10th anniversary of shiny-floor format The Voice . The spin-off sees former contestants return for another chance to win. While no broadcaster has yet been revealed, Maarten Meijs, president of global entertainment for ITV Studios, said during the press event that an announcement would be forthcoming.

The Voice Senior also continues its global roll out, with new commissions in Italy for RAI UNO and in Brazil for Globo, bringing the total commissions for the format to 14 versions. The first season will launch this November in Italy and next year in Brazil.

Following Jahti, the Finnish version of The Chase, ITV Studios’ latest spin-off Beat The Chasers has been commissioned in Finland by MTV3, to be produced by ITV Studios Finland.

Beat The Chasers was recently commissioned for a second season by ITV in the UK, in addition to being acquired by Seven in Australia.
