News and fat people: Operación Triunfo returns and it will do so through a streaming platform. The famous TV show, whose last edition we enjoyed in 2020, will return to the screen again, although this time thanks to an on-demand content company. Be Amazon Prime Video the one offered from now on by this show of potential singers in what will be its twelfth edition. If you are a fan of the format, this is what you need to know.
Operación Triunfo: direct to Prime Video
It is not usual to see a program of this type in a catalog like this, so it is undoubtedly a very interesting and promising movement. The popular program, which is looking for new talents to dedicate itself to the music industry, leaves TVE behind, where its last edition was held in 2020 -with a pandemic involved-, to premiere in a Digital platform.
This is what the VerTele exclusive points out, where it is indicated that its production company, Gestmusic, It had already been contemplating the move to the streaming world for some time and it even handled offers from Netflix and Movistar +. Finally, the first of these has been carried by Amazon with its Prime Video service, where a new edition will be launched very soon -number 12, neither more nor less.
Operación Triunfo started in TVE in 2001 (the year of Bisbal, Chenoa and Rosa) and was on the network until 2003. After that, Telecinco took over the rights, broadcasting those programmed from 2005 to 2011. Finally, the music show returned to public television in 2017, to give us the last three editions that we have enjoyed and from which artists (increasingly younger) of the stature of Aitana or Lola Índigo have emerged.
Given the success of the most recent programs (especially among the younger audience, which is the one that is most active on social networks), we imagine that Amazon they will be inclined to look for similar profiles, which connect much better with the younger generations.
A similar format for the program
From what the source of this news indicates, also in the twelfth edition of Amazon there will be a weekly gala that will be broadcast livejust like on TV, and a 24 hour channel where fans can follow their artists and see how they live together, rehearse and evolve as artists.
It is unknown if Amazon will use its live broadcast platform, Twitch, for broadcasts from the academy, since many more details have not yet been disclosed. Even so, we imagine that the program will premiere this very 2023 (We assume that at the end of the year) or at the beginning of 2024, so it should not take long for more data to be revealed about the new star show on Prime Video, not to mention that the castings should also start to move.
I’m sure we’ll have news soon. Patience.
