Toronto, September 22, 2020 – Incendo has announced today it will oversee program sales of FOX Entertainment-unscripted content in Canada. Under the agreement, FOX brands and franchises to be represented by Incendo include The Masked Singer, last season’s #1 entertainment series, as well as successful fan favourites Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back, Ultimate Tag and the upcoming series I Can See Your Voice. Incendo will also manage the Canadian format business for FOX Entertainment-controlled unscripted series and are currently in discussion with domestic broadcasters and productions companies on the slate of available formats.
Said Brook Peters, Senior Vice-President & Managing Director, “We are delighted to continue our decades-long relationship with FOX Entertainment. Their content brands have received incredible reception and are exceedingly valued by our broadcast community and Canadian audiences, making them a welcomed cornerstone to our distribution business.”
The fourth season of the 2020 Emmy® award-nominated competition series The Masked Singer premieres Wednesday, September 23rd at 8pm on CTV in Canada. The massively popular series is a top-secret singing competition program in which celebrities face off against each other and appear in elaborate costumes with full face masks to conceal their identities.
The musically themed and highly anticipated new series, I Can See Your Voice, has found its home at Global TV in Canada and will premiere Wednesday, September 23rd at 9pm. This program will see actress Cheryl Hines and vocalist Adrienne Bailon-Houghton join host Ken Jeong and a rotating panel of celebrity detectives, composed of comedians and pop culture experts, and a musical superstar to help one contestant tell the difference between good and bad singers, without ever hearing them sing a note. With $100,000 on the line, the contestant attempts to weed out the bad “secret voices” from the good, based on a series of clues, interrogation and lip synch challenges. In the end, the singer whom the contestant picks reveals good or bad singing in a duet performance with the musical superstar, resulting in an amazing musical collaboration or a totally hilarious train wreck.
The Masked Singer and I Can See Your Voice are produced by FOX Entertainment’s in-house unscripted studio, FOX Alternative Entertainment. Ultimate Tag is produced by Znak & Co., while Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back is produced by Studio Ramsay.
