Good Singers is back in France
France’s leading commercial TV channel TF1 has ordered a second season of the singing entertainment show “Good Singers”. The second season has been taped and will be aired on prime time on TF1 this summer.
The show, which is based on Global Agency’s original format “Is That Really Your Voice?”, will be hosted by the comedian Jarry, with celebrity juries on board.
The first season achieved great success and got great ratings with broad leadership across all targets on France’s TF1. It averaged over 3 million viewers in the first season and became of one of the most talked about shows of the summer. The show was also number 1 in the trend topic list on social media and received great comments throughout the show.
Created in 2013 by Izzet Pinto, the format is based on the unique idea of being able to spot good singers by looking at the contestants, without hearing them sing. Among the contestants some of them have unbearable voices. It’s a comedy mystery game show which combines entertainment and talent. In this singing talent comedy show, the traditional studio format is turned on its head because the judges have to make their selections based on looks alone. In this weekly prime time show, two teams will face each other over the course of four rounds, each funnier than the one before. In order to win money for charity they must find the Good Singers!
Izzet PINTO, Founder & CEO of Global Agency, said: “We broke records in the first season. TF1 created a great production of our format. Russia has also adapted the format very successfully. This show is seeing great demand worldwide and has been optioned in many countries including Spain, Italy, Mexico, Portugal, Israel. I believe it will be a hit that will last for years.
Julien DEGROOTE, Head of Content Development of TF1 Group, said: “Good Singers is one of the strongests brands we have in our summer-share-and-fun-programming-strategy, a pure feel-good and co-viewing family show. The appeal of the audience has been out of the normal, with high demand of the second season. The tapings went great and the second season is even better.”
