Mediaset is to produce the internationally successful format Stand Up for Your Country in Spain.
standupThe show, to be co-produced with La Competencia, searches for the best parent-child duo on the scene, with participant selection and castings for the Spanish version now taking place in Madrid, Barcelona and Málaga.
The Zodiak Media show was selected among the world's 20 most fresh formats at MIPCOM this year. The format has been optioned in countries including the US, UK, Italy, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands, with one of the latest deals being with Televisa International for Latin American distribution.
Stand Up For Your Country was inspired by the viral video phenomena of parents and children singing and dancing together. The entertainment series aims to give kids and parents a chance to shine on stage in front of the entire nation in a celebration of family and music.
In the new Mediaset version, performances take place in front of a packed studio audience as well as a panel of celebrity judges. And in a TV first, the audience votes for their favourites with their feet, with only the most outstanding performances receiving a full standing ovation.
