The comedian and actor has signed on as host and executive producer of an all-new music guessing game unscripted series at Fox, I Can See Your Voice.
The format of the show is simple: Each week, one contestant will have the chance to win 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 contestant will be given some help in the form of rounds of lip sync challenges, hidden clues, true-or-false evidence, and a panel of celebrity comedians and a musical superstar. Once the contestant makes their pick, the singer will reveal if they are good or bad in a duet performance with the musical superstar.
“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, in a statement. “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 is based on a South Korean format. The new series will be produced by Fox Alternative Entertainment and is set to debut later this year on Fox.
