The company, which is the production arm of the Scottish broadcaster, has optioned the format from Vivendi Entertainment.
The series, which was originally created by Dmlstv, airs on TF1 in France. In each show, singers, actors, TV hosts, athletes and comedians have to sit in a chair in the middle of the stage, in the dark, having absolutely no clue about what’s going to happen. But then, the music starts playing, the lights go up, and they are surprised to hear the first notes of a song that means a lot to them.
Separately, ITV Studios Germany has also optioned the format, which has been snapped up in ten countries including Finland.
Stv produces series including ITV entertainment format Safeword, which has been remade for VH1 in the U.S.
