It might be in Mandarin and cover mostly Chinese movie and TV celebrities, but a local version of Hollywood gossip show Access Hollywood comes with all the glitz of the US original.

Access Hollywood China can be seen throughout the country and has a potential audience of 300 million viewers. Produced in Beijing, it airs as a one-hour weekly program and is hosted by Chinese TV personality Chen Juan.

"What's unique about this show compared to other versions of Access Hollywood that we have done throughout the world is that it is extremely indigenous and is absolutely made for the People's Republic of China and is completely tailored to the culture," said Leslie Jones, VP of international sales and format production at the show's distributor, NBC Universal Television.
