CBS has attached former American Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe to their American production of Global Agency’s Keep Your Light Shining and will call it In the Spotlight. The original format was launched by Global Agency at MipCom 2013 and has since been optioned in Australia, China, France, Germany, Italy, MENA region, Spain, Thailand and the USA.

Keep Your Light Shining was created by Izzet Pinto, CEO of the Istanbul based international distribution company. “In the last five years, we have become very well known for our reality formats,” said Pinto. “We noticed that international buyers were always looking for singing talent formats and there was room in the market for something fresh and original. With its strong visual appeal and plenty of audience interactivity, Keep Your Light Shining ticked all the boxes for our buyers. We are very pleased to see how quickly it has been picked up and are sure it has all the potential to be the next big thing in talent shows.”
