Star Academy Maghreb 1 on Nesma TV
Nabil Al Qarawi, owner of Qarawi & Qarawi World, said that the new Tunisian private TV channel "Nesma TV" will begin broadcasting at the end of the year making it the second private TV channel in Tunisia but it will be directed to North Africa countries (The Arab Maghreb).
Broadcasting from Paris on Nilesat and Arabsat and produced in Tunis, the station will grab the attention of its North African viewers with variety programs, movies, Hollywood TV series, sports and children’s programs amongst others.
However, its flagship program will be "Star Academy Maghreb" shot in a castle prepared especially for the event in Rades, Tunisia. The area consists of 3 hectares and 64 cameras all around the castle.
14 candidates from the Arab Maghreb will spend 3 months of rigorous training in dance and theater from 6 teachers.
Oh and just when you thought the guys and girls were going to get cozy together at night, be sure that they won’t. This Star Academy is going to be somewhat conservative meaning that they will be shooting the program in guidance with Maghrebian family and traditional values. The guys and girls will be separated by a 5 kilometer distance between them and there will be no cameras in the bedrooms or bathrooms.
