Produced by BiggerStage for Virgin Media, Fox Entertainment has come on board as a media partner which means that the format could also be used to make an American version of the programme.
BiggerStage’s creative director Sean O’Riordan told Independent.ie that Fox has taken a keen interest in the new show with a view to creating its own version.
“This is wholly produced for Virgin Media Television so this is very much an Irish show,” he said.
“It’s been designed for the Irish market so what will happen is Fox will be looking at this and have a live stream to all of this. What they will do is, they will look at this show going out on air in September or October and fingers crossed, all going well, they will commission it for their market instantly. Then there will be an American version of this show made.”
