MIPCOM Spotlight: Banijay Rights


Diverse singers are brought together in an audition with the aim of discovering a vocal partnership the nation will fall in love with in The Duo, a format highlight from Banijay Rights.

“The wonderful unpredictability of human chemistry is the essence of this entertainment format,” says Andrew Sime, VP of formats at Banijay Rights. “The winner will be two individual voices brought together by fate to create one unique and magical sound.”

The search for the next food sensation is on with Taste for the Nation.

Meanwhile, LIVE looks for a musical artist who can wow a live audience. “From the very first show, viewers can enjoy the atmosphere and sensation of a live performance and vote in real time to decide who they think is the country’s next big live star,” says Sime.

On the scripted side, Hidden features dark secrets, unsuspected identities and supernatural forces, which converge against the backdrop of modern-day Sweden. “Blending the paranormal with hard-hitting realism and psychological drama, this suspense-driven series deals with being an outsider,” says Chris Stewart, commercial director for scripted at Banijay Rights.
