A local version of the format, produced by Idea Asia Media, will air in the coming months in China.
Along with China, ‘Super Star Ding Dong’ has been optioned by Mastiff Media in Poland and is attracting strong interest in the Middle East at MIPCOM, according to sales agent Banijay International.
The format, which is created by Ireland’s Vision Independent, sees contestants faced with eight closed doors, each with a doorbell that chimes out a popular song. Contestants must be able to recognise hit tunes in this wacky form. Correct answers unlock the door allowing a celebrity look-alike to come out and perform, before heading to the VIP section. The contestant with the most stars in the VIP section will has a greater chance of winning a fabulous prize.
The format was sold by global distributors Banijay International and the deal is for a 20 episode run. ‘Super Star Ding Dong’ originally aired on TV3 in 2010.
