Global Agency’s singing comedy show Is That Really Your Voice? is set to launch on TF1 in France as Good Singers.
TF1 has begun production on the series based on Global Agency’s original format. It will be hosted by TV personality Anthony Lambert (Jarry), with celebrity juries on board. The first episode of Good Singers will premiere on TF1 on July 17.
Created in 2013 by Izzet Pinto, Is That Really Your Voice? is based on the idea of being able to spot good singers by looking at the contestants, without hearing them sing. It’s a comedy-mystery game show that combines entertainment and talent. The judges have to make their selections based on looks alone, with two teams facing each other over the course of four rounds. In order to win money for charity, they must find the good singers.
Izzet Pinto, founder and CEO of Global Agency, said: “I’m very excited to be partnering with TF1 on our fantastic entertainment format Is That Really Your Voice? The idea for the show came from watching the singer Susan Boyle, who rose to fame on a talent show. That inspired me to create this format. Her voice did not match her look and created big surprising moments for the audience. This feeling led me to create this idea. Then TF1 channel acquired our format. After the TF1’s perfect adaptation of Is That Really Your Voice?, we decided to use the brand name Good Singers. After the announcement of Good Singers, there has been huge interest in this format even before the launch. It looks like audiences around the world are showing interest in comedy formats these days. Good Singers will be a perfect show for worldwide TV channels. I think it will be the next big thing!”
