Sky1 has given the greenlight to Bring The Noise, a “music and comedy” series featuring Ricky Wilson, Nicole Scherzinger, Tinie Tempah and Katherine Ryan.
Bring The Noise is hosted by Ricky Wilson, while Nichole Scherzinger and Tinie Tempah serve as team captains and Katherine Ryan is a permanent panellist. Each episode will feature celebrity guests who will take part in rounds involving music trivia questions and games with musical set pieces. The final round will see the teams compete in a musical performance battle. A House Band will also perform in each episode
The series, which is set up at Duncan Gray’s indie Twenty Six 03, has received an order for eight episodes. Former Sky Living boss Antonia Hurford-Jones executive produces alongside Duncan Gray, Sky’s Head Of Non-Scripted Commissioning Celia Taylor and Sky’s Non-Scripted Commissioning Editor Richard Ackerman. Chris Little is the series producer, while Stephen Stewart is on-board as director. Sky Vision will handle global sales.
“This is a truly unique format with top quality music guests at its heart. It continues our commitment to ambitious, new, fresh entertainment that viewers can only experience on Sky 1″, said Adam MacDonald, Director of Sky1. “I’m thrilled that Ricky is joining us as host in an all-time first for him. To also welcome Nicole back to UK screens and to be the format that tempts a man of Tinie’s calibre, while uncovering Katherine Ryan’s extraordinary comedic musical talent, is fantastic. The mix of music, comedy and entertainment makes it the must-see family show of the autumn.”
