Armoza’s The Final Four Lands In Finland
ITV Studios Finland has now acquired the local rights to the Armoza Formats developed and distributed prime time singing competition, The Final Four. The deal was signed on the second day of MIPCOM.
This follows the deal made earlier this week with Context Media, who will be bringing The Final Four to New Zealand and pan-Asia. The show is currently in production in several major territories.
In The Final Four (13x90-120’), for the first time on TV, the four superstar-quality finalists will be announced in the season premiere! Selected by a trio of top music judges, only the best will make the final four and live like VIPs from the start! But they shouldn’t get too comfortable… because this singing competition is more extreme and more exhilarating than any other! In every episode, talented hopefuls will try to steal a seat from one of the final four. Anyone can become a contestant at any time via submissions on the dedicated app, but only the best will be able to challenge the four finalists. Who will manage to win the audience’s hearts and hold on to their spot? And in the season finale, who will be crowned the winner when the final four battle against each other?
Pete Paavolainen, CEO of ITV Studios Finland, “We are very excited about ‘The Final Four’. Starting the show with four finalists already picked is different than anything I’ve ever seen before and by bringing new talent in every week, we can keep the tension up all season - it’s new and fresh.”
Avi Armoza, CEO of Armoza Formats, “The global appeal of ‘The Final Four’ shows that many broadcasters are ready to update the music competition genre in new and unique ways. We are happy to see so many in the industry want to join us on this exciting evolution and we are thrilled to be working with ITV Studios in Finland on this deal.”
