Name That Tune Returning in Germany


Banijay Productions Germany will produce Let the Music Play—Das Hit Quiz (Name That Tune) for SAT.1.

Making a comeback after 20 years, the German adaptation will be hosted by Amiaz Habtu, and Wolf & The Gang will perform the music. Songs from any genre and any decade are played live in the studio on this musical game show.

Let the Music Play—Das Hit Quiz sees three contestants battle it out across five rounds to see who can correctly name the song the quickest. Only one contestant will go through to the final and be in with the chance of walking away with €10,000.

The Name That Tune format has already traveled to 26 markets to date. Banijay Rights distributes the format outside of the U.S., Canada, Australia, Russia and Poland.

Carlotta Rossi Spencer, head of format acquisitions at Banijay, commented: “Having recently added this format to our catalog, it is great to secure another commission. The format taps into what audiences love about gameshows, whilst the live music brings a celebratory, fun atmosphere, both for the contestants and those playing along at home.”
