Endemol Shine Group to Take Beat Shazam Global


Endemol Shine Group has landed the exclusive international distribution rights to take FOX’s interactive music game show Beat Shazam out to the worldwide market.

Endemol Shine Group will be the exclusive distributor of the format across all platforms outside of the U.S. and will produce local versions of the show. Endemol Shine International will also distribute the FOX series outside the U.S.

Hosted and executive produced by actor and musician Jamie Foxx (Ray, Django Unchained), Beat Shazam launched on FOX in May and has been renewed for a second season.

Lisa Perrin, CEO of Creative Networks at Endemol Shine Group, said: “Beat Shazam had a brilliant launch on FOX this summer and the show’s unique mix of music, quizzing and a big cash prize has broad audience appeal. This format can be easily adapted and scaled for broadcasters in any market and by leveraging our global footprint, we are in a unique position to roll the show out worldwide.”
