Syco & Thames Producing New Music Show for ITV


ITV has commissioned Your Song, a music special from Syco Entertainment and Thames, which is part of FremantleMedia UK.

Your Song will air in a prime-time slot on ITV this fall. The hour-long special, hosted by Emma Willis (The Voice UK, Big Brother), will celebrate the lives of real people who have done something extraordinary as they witness the performance of a lifetime from some of their favorite artists.

Your Song will be executive produced by Amelia Brown (Britain’s Got Talent) and Sally Wood (Brit Awards). Your Song was commissioned by Siobhan Greene, the head of entertainment commissioning and broadcasting at ITV.

Willis said: “This is such an amazing show to be part of…imagine seeing somebody you love, and who is so deserving, being surprised with the performance of a lifetime by their musical hero! I think there’ll be plenty of tears, hugs and happiness!”

Nigel Hall, the global head of television for Syco Entertainment, commented: “Your Song is an extremely exciting project that we have been developing for some time. We are now delighted it is coming to fruition. And we are sure it will bring surprise, entertainment and emotion to everyone at home. We all have that special song which means the world to us—and it will be really exciting to see superstars perform them for their biggest fans.”

Richard Holloway, the managing director at Thames, added: “We’re very excited to be making Your Song for ITV. It’s a really warm, heartfelt show celebrating the lives of real people and rewarding them with the performance of a lifetime from one of the music industry’s biggest stars.”
