KO brings variety show Zenith to MIPTV
Montreal-based KO Distribution, the distribution arm of Canada’s KOTV, will be attending this year’s MIPTV 2023 with a line-up of programs highlighted by their brand-new singing competition “Zenith”.

Zenith is KOTV’s original-concept variety music series. Designed with glamour in mind, the production gathers well known singers from different generations to compete against each other on a large, arena-style stage in a weekly singing in front of an audience made up of 100 judges who are also grouped by generation: Boomers, Gen X, Gen Y, and Gen Z. Over 13 weeks, 24 artist-singers, 6 per generation, will revisit popular hits from yesterday and today in show-stopping large-scale performances. Hosted by popular French-Canadian TV and radio personality, Veronique Cloutier, a diverse group of artists take-on the challenge of presenting their extraordinary musical talents with the aim of winning over the audience.

The series launched on ICI Radio-Canada in January to rave reviews.
