Another Season of Little Big Shots for ITV

ITV has ordered a 6×60-minute second season of the entertainment series Little Big Shots from Wall To Wall, a Warner Bros. Television Production UK company.

Little Big Shots gives talented children between the ages of 4 and 13 the opportunity to showcase their skills, with no chance of elimination or prizes to compete for. Actress/comedienne Dawn French is once again on board to present the U.K. version of the program, which is based on the hit U.S. format.

French commented: “I absolutely loved filming the first [season] and cannot wait to get started on the second. It’s the show where I get to hang out with incredibly talented children from all over the world, making new friends on the sofa each week. I will never forget Balang from the Philippines, who had me in fits of giggles while teaching me a move or two, or Thomas, who sang David Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’ so beautifully! In our crazy upside-down world, it is great to make a show that is just so positive.”

Peter Davey, the head of entertainment at ITV, noted: “This is such a great format and Dawn is the perfect host. I’m looking forward to seeing what extraordinary talents will be unveiled on the next installment.”

Leanne Klein, Wall To Wall’s chief executive, added: “I am absolutely delighted that Little Big Shots is returning to ITV for a second [season]. With the fantastically funny Dawn French at the helm, the audience has really taken the show to their hearts.”
