The Big Deal
Virgin Media Television have confirmed that filming is underway in Ireland on its brand new entertainment show, The Big Deal.

Pop legend Boy George, comedian Deirdre O’Kane, singer Aston Merrygold, Jedward, and ascendant music star, Lyra, make up the judging panel for this brand new show, which launches in the autumn, while Vogue Williams takes the reins as host. 

The Big Deal will showcase variety acts, from musicians and magicians through comedians and dancers, to acrobats and the utterly undefinable. The only thing the performers have in common is an ability to make jaws drop, hearts race and eyes roll — and occasionally tear up. 

After each act, the performers are offered a deal: they can either accept a cash buyout and leave the competition with a sum of money — or they can reject the offer and hope they’ve impressed the judges enough to progress through to the final and the chance to win a life-changing prize pot.

“The Big Deal is a spectacular new entertainment show filming in Dublin’s 3Arena and is on a scale not seen in Ireland before,” Bill Malone, Director of Content, Virgin Media Television.

“Fox Alternative Entertainment, BiggerStage and Virgin Media Television have joined forces for this unique partnership to create a landmark new entertainment format. And that is what The Big Deal is all about – Entertainment.”

The co-production sees former Virgin Managing Director, Pat Kiely, reunite with the broadcaster in his recently appointed role of CEO with BiggerStage. Speaking about the project, Kiely said: “At BiggerStage, our mission is to work with great talent and the world’s best entertainment brands.”

“In bringing together this stellar line-up and in partnering with Virgin Media Television and Fox Alternative Entertainment, The Big Deal is a great testament to what can be achieved,” added Kiely. “As a world first we are looking forward to giving Irish viewers a great family, fun-filled show whilst showcasing Irish television skills at their best.”
