Banijay Rights lines up format deals in Greece
Ahead of its participation in NATPE Budapest, Banijay Rights has announced new adaptations of the popular entertainment format All Together Now in Greece.
Commercial network Alpha TV has commissioned Athens-based prodco Barking Well Media to produce the first season of a local version of the format (pictured), which will be scheduled to debut later this year.
Created by Banijay UK–owned Remarkable TV for BBC One and now sold to over 18 markets, All Together Now sees singers, both solo and in groups, perform in front of “The 100,” an audience of great singers with big voices and even bigger opinions. If any of “The 100″ like what they hear, they can stand up and sing along. The more that join in, the higher the act’s score.
The deal follows the launch of Australian format The Hundred, which recently had its first international adaptation on Star Channel in Greece. The series is produced locally by Green Pixel, and was originally created by Screentime Australia/Endemol Shine Australia.
