Banijay Rights Takes Two Formats to Greece


Banijay Rights has secured deals for new Greek adaptations of All Together Now and The Hundred.

The commercial network Alpha TV has commissioned Barking Well Media to produce a first season of All Together Now, which will premiere later this year. The Australian format The Hundred, meanwhile, has been adapted by Green Pixel for Star Channel in Greece.

All Together Now was originally created by Banijay UK-owned Remarkable TV for BBC One in the U.K. and has now sold to over 18 markets. The format sees a range of talented vocalists perform in front of “The 100,” an audience of great singers.

The Hundred, which aired its second season on Nine Network in Australia in February, was originally created by Screentime Australia/Endemol Shine Australia. Featuring 100 everyday Australians from all over the country who are handpicked to represent their nation, they are standing by to be polled live and give the stories behind the stat. Each week, comedians and celebrities battle it out to prove who really knows Australia best, challenging “The Hundred” and unpacking the facts along the way.

Robin Pollok, VP of sales for Africa, the Middle East, Greece and Israel at Banijay Rights, said: “Greece has long been fertile ground for entertainment programming, so it’s thrilling to secure these landmark deals with the nation’s leading broadcasters ahead of NATPE Budapest International. From a fresh take on a traditional talent competition to an innovative entertainment show, we’re looking forward to working closely with our partners in Greece in the coming months.”
