Global Agency’s The Legend Gears Up for World Premiere


Global Agency’s prime-time talent competition The Legend is slated to premiere with a local version on Band TV in Brazil this August.

The Brazilian adaptation of the format will be broadcast weekly in prime time with a live voting system via the show’s app. It is produced by the in-house production arm of Band TV.

Izzet Pinto, founder and CEO of Global Agency and the creator of the format, said: “We are extremely enthusiastic to announce the premiere date of The Legend on Band TV. We believe they are the perfect partner for the territory. We are only a few months away from the launch of a most fascinating and iconic television show and can’t wait to witness the visual feast, the buzz and the fresh air that it will bring to the world of entertainment. I have no doubt that The Legend will be a masterstroke in the next couple of years, with different versions all around the world. The industry has long been waiting for a new and exciting shiny-floor format, The Legend possesses all the right elements!”
