MGM has acquired the rights in 12 territories for the format Secret Audition from Groupe M6, with Mark Burnett on board to produce the show in the U.S.
MGM picked up the rights for the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, the Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and India. Secret Audition is produced by Studio 89 and owned by Studio 89, Explay Music and La Casa.
Burnett, the chairman of the worldwide television group at MGM, will produce the U.S. version along with MGM Television. The unscripted show puts unsuspecting vocal talent into the spotlight for a chance to showcase their voice and, unbeknownst to them, audition for a record deal.
