A U.S. adaptation of Fremantle’s Game of Talents will arrive on FOX in 2021, hosted by Wayne Brady.
The unscripted variety show, in which contestants must guess the performers’ hidden talent, is currently in production in Los Angeles.
“Game of Talents represents everything we here at FOX endeavor to bring to viewers,” said Rob Wade, president of alternative entertainment and specials at FOX Entertainment. “It’s a chance for families to gather for magnetic gameplay, a fun peek into extraordinary skills of ordinary people and a friendly, spirited variety competition.”
“Game of Talents is a dynamic combination of talent and game shows, and is destined to be the country’s next big family entertainment format,” said Jayson Dinsmore, president of alternative programming and development at Fremantle. “Fremantle is home to the most renowned competition formats from across the globe and we can’t wait to, with the help of our partners at FOX and the extraordinarily talented Wayne Brady, bring our latest international hit to America.”
“What excites me about this series and this concept is every week we get to show off talents that will amaze, inspire and, in some cases, make your jaw drop,” said Brady. “As someone who loves games and loves all types of talent, this was a perfect fit for me and I’m thrilled to be a part of the creative team bringing it to life. I also get to give away someone else’s money, which I always enjoy doing!”
The format originated in Spain, from Fremantle in conjunction with Mediaset España. It is also set to launch in the U.K. on ITV, Sweden on SVT, and Holland and Belgium on RTL4 and VTM in 2021.
