Music mystery gameshow I Can See Your Voice produced by Thames (a Fremantle label) is to return to BBC One for a second nine-part series (including a Christmas special). The commission comes following the recent ratings success which has seen an average of 3.8m across the first six episodes, with a 22% share and a peak of 5.1m viewers.
Each week, players will need to navigate their way through a series of rounds to win a cash prize by guessing who can and can’t sing from a group of mystery people standing before them, all without ever hearing them sing a note.
Kate Phillips, Controller Entertainment Commissioning for the BBC said: “We are so pleased that I Can See Your Voice will be returning. I know viewers have really enjoyed playing along with our very funny, frank panel, as we all hold our breaths for those memorable moments when a great or gruesome singer starts belting out a banger!”
Amelia Brown, Managing Director of Thames and Executive Producer of I Can See Your Voice said: “We’re thrilled to be able to share the news that I Can See Your Voice will be making a return to our screens. It’s incredible to see how viewers have embraced the format which has seen some unique and notable performances.”
The series is based on a South Korean format from CJ ENM, debuting on Mnet in February 2015. Since the premiere, it has widely received acclaim with an International Emmy nomination for Best Non-scripted Entertainment Programme and increasing interest for local adaptations. It has been successfully commissioned in over 18 countries including Germany and the USA.
I Can See Your Voice was commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Director BBC Content and Kate Phillips, Controller Entertainment Commissioning. The Executive Producer is Amelia Brown for Thames. The Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Rachel Ashdown.
