US format Little Big Shots, which celebrates diverse talents of kids aged 3 to 13 years old, is headed to Seven with actor Shane Jacobson as host.
The series airs in the UK with Dawn French and in the US with Steve Harvey. Warner Bros. TV will produce the version for Seven.
Seven’s director of programming, Angus Ross, said: “Little Big Shots is the ultimate feel-good program. We’re delighted to welcome Shane into the Seven fold. He’s a sensational performer and the perfect fit for this family-friendly show with a lot of heart.”
The revolving-stage format offers no prize and has no eliminations.
Andrew Zein, senior VP, creative, format development and sales at WBITVP, said: “Since we launched Little Big Shots just 12 months ago here at MipTV, we’ve seen channels across the world embrace this unique, entertaining and hugely successful format. We’re thrilled to be partnering with Seven and are confident that Australian audiences will enjoy the most talented, extraordinary and funny kids that Little Big Shots will showcase there.”
In 2010 Nine produced When I Grow Up with Jacobson but never put it to air, after pilots were filmed with Bert Newton and Jules Lund.
