Adapting Idols: Authenticity, Identity And Performance In A Global Television Format

RRP $268.99

Since the first series of "Pop Idol" aired in the UK just over a decade ago, "Idols" television shows have been broadcast in more than forty countries all over the world. In all those countries the global "Idols" format has been adapted to local cultures and production contexts, resulting in a plethora of different versions, ranging from the "Dutch Idols" to the "Pan-Arab Super Star" and from "Nigerian Idol" to the international blockbuster "American Idol". Despite its worldwide success and widespread journalistic coverage, the "Idols" phenomenon has received only limited academic attention. "Adapting Idols: Authenticity, Identity and Performance in a Global Television Format" brings together original studies from scholars in different parts of the world to identify and evaluate the productive dimensions of "Idols". As one of the world's most successful television formats, "Idols" offers a unique case for the study of cultural globalization. Chapters discuss how "Idols" shows address particular national or regional identity politics and how "Idols" is consumed by audiences in different territories. This book illustrates that even though the same television format is used in countries all over the globe, practices of adaptation can still result in the creation of unique local cultural products.
