Following on the success of “The Masked Singer,” Fox is doubling down with another South Korean game show import, the musical series “I Can See Your Voice.”
Based on the South Korean format from CJ ENM, the show will offer contestants a cash prize if he or she can tell the difference between the good and bad singers, without ever hearing them sing a note. “The Masked Singer” judge Ken Jeong will serve as host and executive producer.
“Just like ‘The Masked Singer,’ ‘I Can See Your Voice’ is a distinctive format that makes for a big, bold creative swing. And with Ken leading the charge as host, it’s going to be another crazy ride for viewers,” said Rob Wade, President, Alternative Entertainment & Specials, FOX Entertainment. “‘I Can See Your Voice’ provides us with another show as we continue to build out FOX Alternative Entertainment’s production slate.”
Jeong added, “As the smartest judge on ‘The Masked Singer,’ I am excited to be the host of ‘I Can See Your Voice.’ I truly love working with Rob Wade, Craig Plestis and everyone at FOX Alternative, and I know EXACTLY what the next big FOX hit will be!”
Like “The Masked Singer,” “I Can See Your Voice” will feature a panel of “celebrity comedians/experts and a musical superstar” to help the contestant navigate “rounds of lip sync challenges, hilarious hidden clues and true-or-false evidence.” In the end, the singer whom the contestant picks will reveal if they are good or bad in a duet performance with the musical superstar, resulting in an amazing musical collaboration or a totally hilarious train wreck.
The show will be produced in-house via Fox Alternative Entertainment, with James McKinlay and Craig Plestis serving as executive producers.
