KI’s Master Class to Be Adapted in Uruguay


MIAMI: Keshet International (KI) has licensed its music talent show Master Class to Teledoce (La Tele), Uruguay’s leading free-to-air channel.

The deal marks the first original KI format to be adapted for audiences in Uruguay and will be the first-ever Spanish-language version of the show. The local 26×90-minute version will be produced in-house at Teledoce and will launch in late spring. Casting for the show is currently underway.

Eugenio Restano, the programming manager at Teledoce, said, “We’re delighted to be working with Keshet International to bring this immensely popular, proven ratings-winning program to audiences across Uruguay. This isn’t just a talent show, it’s a TV event for the whole family.”

Kelly Wright, the head of Latin America at Keshet International, said, “Master Class allows viewers to spend a magical couple of hours each week with children as they learn about and sing classic songs at this gifted music school. We are delighted to share it with Uruguayan audiences for the first time as Teledoce leads the first Spanish-language rollout of this internationally successful format.”
