Syco, FremantleMedia to Bow ‘Afghanistan’s Got Talent’

Deal follows bow of local versions in Brazil, Kazakhstan

Simon Cowell’s Syco and FremantleMedia is to launch “Afghanistan’s Got Talent,” which will be the 55th local adaptation of the format.

The show will bow later this year on Afghanistan’s 1TV Media. It comes on the back of the recent launches of “Brazil’s Got Talent” on Rede Record and “Kazakhstan’s Got Talent” on Kazakhstan 1 earlier this year.

“America’s Got Talent,” the longest running local version of the format, is in its eighth season, attracting peak audiences of more than 11 million viewers. “America’s Got Talent” has been sold to 180 countries by FremantleMedia Intl.

Further local versions of “Got Talent” are on the way, with total sales of the format having reached 58 territories.

Rob Clark, director, global entertainment development, FremantleMedia, said: “’Got Talent’ is an all-round record-breaker. Whether it is notching up more territory sales than any other talent format, or reaching over a billion views on the ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ YouTube channel, the show is true phenomenon. More than 620 million viewers have watched the Got Talent format since it first launched in 2006.”
