Abstract/Summary Idols is one of the most popular and successful global television formats produced in the last decade. The format has heen adapted in over 40 territories all over the world, as the appendix -compiled by Sukhpreet Singh and Martin Kretschmer for this book- shows. The original show, Pop Idol, went to air in the UK in 2001. The next year, local versions of the show were broadcast in Poland, South A fuca, the USA, Germany and the Netherlands. By the end of2004-exactly three years after the introduction of Pop Idol- 30 territories were screening their own Idols shows, illustrating the rapid global spread of the format. In some cases Idols was produced for transnational geographic regions, such as Asian Idol- with auditions in India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Vietnam - and the Pan-Arab Superstar, which featured contestants from Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Libya, Morocco and Algeria. The most recent branch on the global Idols tree at the time of writing is Idol Puerto Rico. The owners of the Idols format, FremantleMedia and 19 Entertainment, have thus managed to capitalize on the work put into the design of the original UK show by turning it into a format and selling it to a range of territories.
