BBC Two has ordered a spin-off series of BBC One’s hit series The Voice, TVWise has learned.
The as-yet untitled series is in a thirty minute format and will air Monday-Fridays at 6:30pm when The Voice is in-season. The format will be fronted by Zoe Ball and give viewers an ‘Access all Areas’ pass, with each episode packed with exclusive interviews from the superstar coaches, special live performances from the finalists and all the goings-on and gossip from behind-the-scenes. Wall To Wall, the prod co that also produces The Voice for the BBC in association with Talpa Media, are producing the spin-off for BBC Two. The executive producers are Moira Ross and Alex McLeod.
“I’m super excited to be involved in The Voice UK, and I’m doing some star jumps and squats to limber up for action as I speak”, said Zoe Ball. “Fans can think of me as the nosey naughty one who can ask questions we all want answering by their favourite acts and of course Kylie, Tom, will.i.am and Ricky. I shall bring everyone a little closer to the action and I promise not to sing!”
While Moira Ross, Wall To Wall’s Head of Entertainment, added: “Having a spin-off series for The Voice UK means we can give fans of the show unprecedented access to everything that goes on behind the scenes and tell the stories we don’t have time to cover on BBC One. With Zoe at the helm it will be a fun show full of tasty titbits, top guests and exclusive performances.”
