Today, Disney+ announced that the next edition of Italia’s Got Talent will land on the streaming service. The hit talent show, produced by Fremantle Italia, will be an Disney+ Original series.
Adapted in 72 countries, Got Talent is the most successful format in the world, earning it the title of ‘World Guinness Record’ as ‘Most Popular Talent/Reality Show’. Created in 2006, it has reached more than 1 billion viewers globally and is currently broadcast in 33 countries with excellent ratings. The Italian edition is the first Got Talent to be available on a streaming platform in Europe.
“I am thrilled to be able to announce the arrival on Disney+ of a well-established and beloved format like Italia’s Got Talent, an addition to our collaboration with Fremantle,” tells Daniel Frigo, Country Manager, The Walt Disney Company Italia. “Italia’s Got Talent represents a further milestone in building an increasingly broader and more complete general entertainment library for the Disney+ audience.”
Andrea Scrosati Group COO and CEO Continental Europe of Fremantle says: “Got Talent is the world’s leading talent show and one of most valuable formats for Fremantle. There could not have been a better partner than Disney to launch it, for the first time in Europe, on a streaming service. We are proud of this collaboration, which we are sure will lead to a unique and extraordinary show for Disney+ subscribers in Italy.”
Italia’s Got Talent is a success story: with 12 seasons under its belt, more than 1,270 contestants have graced the stage of the talent show, showcasing their talents in all kinds of disciplines in search of the judges’ coveted “Golden Buzzer”: singers, comedians, dancers, illusionists, acrobats, but also animal trainers, instrumentalists, ventriloquists, impersonators and all kinds of other performers.
Internationally renowned artists and amateurs with incredible abilities united by the desire to showcase their skills in an enthralling tale where what counts is to excite and entertain.
Some of them, thanks to the show, have achieved success and are now established talents in the world of television, music and social media, in Italy and beyond. These include, to name but a few, Max Angioni, Aurora Leone, Francesco Arienzo, Mary Sarnataro, Andrea Paris, Federico Martelli and Urban Theory.
