Starstruck Being Adapted for VTM in Belgium


Banijay Belgium is to produce a Flemish adaptation of Starstruck for VTM, marking the fifth version of the studio entertainment format.

Originally created by Remarkable Entertainment, the format has already been adapted in the U.K., where Starstruck has run for two seasons on ITV and ITVX, as well as in Chile, Bulgaria and Denmark.

In the series, a trio of everyday people with exceptional talent take the stage as they team up and transform into the same iconic star. Rival groups battle it out to prove why the audience and expert judges should vote for them as the winning team. Each performer must stand out, as only one contestant can go through to the grand final and take their shot at winning the cash prize.

Isabelle Dams, managing director of Banijay Belgium, said: “With an incredible set, unbelievable transformations and raw talent, Starstruck is the perfect show to bring multiple ages together. I am looking forward to the audience seeing the trios perform iconic songs from a range of eras and genres. ”

Lucas Green, chief content officer for operations at Banijay, added: “Starstruck is a party of high-energy, spectacular shiny-floor entertainment. First airing in 2022, the fact it has sold to five territories is testament to the strength of the format and its adaptability.”
