Star Factory (Russian: Фабрика звёзд, Fabrika zvyozd) is a Russian television show aired on Channel One since 13 October 2002. The show is the Russian version of the Endemol format Operación Triunfo.

The show has had seven seasons, all of them hosted by Yana Churikova. The show's alumni include Timati, Yulia Savicheva, Natalia Podolskaya, Dmitry Koldun, and Elena Temnikova. The 7th season was sponsored by singer Alla Pugacheva, who had starred in a TV musical mocking the Star Factory, together with Maxim Galkin and Verka Serduchka. In March 2011, the show announced that it would be returning with an 8th All-Star Season. The 8th season would include 4 composers that had previously produced a season of the show: Igor Matvienko (1 and 5), Igor Krutoi (4), Victor Drobysh (4 and 6), and Konstantin Meladze (7).Each composer would have 3 singers that they had previously produced after the show.
