Global Agency’s new shiny-floor format Open Call puts a fresh spin on the classic singing competition.
“Each hopeful singer will first upload a 60-second homemade video selfie to the show’s website or app, where users will vote for their favorite ones,” explains Isil Turksen, sales director for Asia at Global Agency. “The most popular videos are then chosen to take part in the competition, but there is a catch: only the audience in the studio decides if they wish to see more of this performance.” Also on offer is the game show In and Out, which sees contestants try to earn money while avoiding the bankruptcy card.
On the scripted side is Queens, a drama series chronicling the struggles between Elizabeth I of England and Mary Stuart of Scotland in a world of men. “Queens is inspired directly by Winston Churchill’s texts and the extraordinary biography of Mary Stuart written by John Guy,” Turksen says.
