      Sky 1 to launch brand new talent show, Spelling Star

      https://corporate.sky.com/media-cent...-spelling-star
      Sky 1 has today announced a spectacular new family entertainment series, which will uncover the nation's best young speller and will come to the channel later this year.

      Spelling Star, a new eight-part series, produced by Remarkable Television, part of Endemol Shine Group, will be steeped in jaw-dropping drama and heart-warming moments as 20 children aged nine to 13 go word to word in the ultimate spelling showdown.

      Unlike a traditional spelling bee competition, the series will be full of emotion as viewers watch the children compete in a range of challenges and games based around spelling, words and meanings. The show will also delve into the compelling stories of the contestants and watch the elation and despair from their parents backstage who will be there to support every step of the way.

      The series will culminate in a gripping finale where just one of the youngsters will be crowned the UKs Champion Speller.

      Celia Taylor, head of non-scripted commissions for Sky said: Were a nation of talent show lovers and Sky 1s Spelling Star is like no other out there. It has children at its heart, and with children comes touching innocence and loveable honesty that will make viewers laugh and cry during every episode.

      James Fox, managing director of Remarkable Television said: "Spelling Star brilliantly combines the drama and emotion of a knockout competition with simple and irresistible games that anyone can play. We're thrilled to be working with Sky 1 to bring this extraordinary new show to the UK."

      Created by Endemol Shine Australia, Spelling Star had been a huge hit for Network Ten who have just commissioned a second series. The format has been among Endemol Shine Group's highlights in Cannes where the format made its international launch last year at MIPCOM.

      Richard Ackerman is the commissioning editor for Sky and the executive producers are James Fox and Richard Hague at Remarkable Television.

      I cannot believe someone somewhere is actually getting paid to come up with stuff like this?
