James R | On 11, Apr 2020
ITV will stream Britain’s Got Talent: Unseen exclusively this spring.
The spin-off is the first show to be made and broadcast exclusively for ITV’s catch-up platform. It will feature unseen auditions and moments by shining a light on some of the nation’s most wonderful and eclectic talent. Made by Thames (part of Fremantle) and Syco Entertainment, the series follows the success of BGT’s social platforms which have amassed more than one billion video views and 22 million followers.
From the mystifying to the magical, plus everything in between, Britain’s Got Talent: Unseen will give even more contestants their moment in the spotlight where they can showcase their incredible talents to both the judges and the audience at home. And with extra interviews from the nation’s favourite TV duo, Ant and Dec, as well as unseen comments from our formidable foursome – show creator Simon Cowell plus Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams – Britain’s Got Talent: Unseen will be unmissable viewing.
Speaking on the announcement, Athena Witter, Director of Digital, Fremantle says: “We have seen tremendous growth in Britain’s Got Talent’s presence across all major digital platforms and we are finding that our viewers continue to demand entertaining content. It’s thrilling to be able to announce an additional platform for audiences to enjoy the wealth of content that sits outside of the main show.”
Nigel Hall, Global Head Of TV, Syco Entertainment, adds: “During these tough times we are determined to deliver entertainment all the family can enjoy. We are confident Britain’s Got Talent: Unseen will be perfect for that and the ideal accompaniment to the main series.”
The eight mini-episodes will appear on ITV Hub straight after transmission of the main show’s audition episodes on ITV.
Britain’s Got Talent premieres on Saturday 11th April at 8pm.
