New variety series based on Fremantle’s hit international format to premiere in 2021 on FOX

FOX has ordered “Game of Talents,” an all-new unscripted variety show in which contestants must guess the performers’ hidden talent, based only on their first impressions and a few wily clues. Emmy Award winner Wayne Brady (“Let’s Make A Deal,” “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”) is set to host and executive-produce the program. Produced by Fremantle and based on its hit international format, “Game of Talents” will premiere on FOX in 2021. The series is currently in production in Los Angeles.

“ ‘Game of Talents’ represents everything we here at FOX endeavor to bring to viewers,” said Rob Wade, president of alternative entertainment and specials, FOX Entertainment. “It’s a chance for families to gather for magnetic gameplay, a fun peek into extraordinary skills of ordinary people and a friendly, spirited variety competition.”

“ ‘Game of Talents’ is a dynamic combination of talent and game shows, and is destined to be the country’s next big family entertainment format,” said Jayson Dinsmore, president of alternative programming and development, Fremantle. “Fremantle is home to the most renowned competition formats from across the globe, and we can’t wait to – with the help of our partners at FOX and the extraordinarily talented Wayne Brady – bring our latest international hit to America.”

Brady said, “What excites me about this series and this concept is every week we get to show off talents that will amaze, inspire and, in some cases, make your jaw-drop. As someone who loves games and loves all types of talent, this was a perfect fit for me and I’m thrilled to be a part of the creative team bringing it to life. I also get to give away someone else’s money, which I always enjoy doing!”

From the producers of “America’s Got Talent,” comes the international hit variety show “Game of Talents.” Taking the awe, wonder and spectacle of a large-scale variety show and infusing it with a clue centered, high-intensity investigative game, “Game of Talents” is a new hybrid series like audiences have never seen before. The series pits two teams of contestants against each other as they attempt to figure out the surprising – and sometimes bizarre – hidden talents of the mystery performers. With more than $200,000 on the line, can the contestants spot the fire dancer from the spider wrangler or the chainsaw juggler from the contortionist? Can the audience?
