After huge success of ongoing singing reality show ‘Nepal Idol’, AP1 TV channel is planning to bring yet another international franchise show to Nepal. Close sources say that the deal is already done and the official announcement will be done soon.
AP1 has already confirmed about another international franchise TV show coming but they have not yet confirmed the name of the show. It is highly possible that the show is ‘Got Talent’ which is named as the world’s most successful reality TV format show and is being registered in ‘Guinness World Records’. The show is now aired in more than 55 countries around the world. Every country has it’s own version such as ‘America’s Got Talent’, ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, ‘India’s Got Talent’ etc. So can we guess that it will be called ‘Nepal’s Got Talent’ when we have our own version?
Unlike ‘Idol’ this show is all about ‘Talent’ where you can perform any talent that is extraordinary such as singing, dancing, magic, and other unique talent. It was conceived and owned by Simon Cowell. A pilot was made in the United Kingdom in 2005, hosted by Paul O’Grady, but after O’Grady’s split with ITV, the series was postponed, resulting in NBC’s America’s Got Talent – the first full series of the format.
Both the shows ‘Idol Version’ and ‘Got Talent’ are managed by Fremantle Media Group. Hoping that ‘Got Talent comes to Nepal and it will be as successful as Idol’.
For now, let’s wait and see 🙂
