Hosted by triple Bafta-winning British stand-up comedian Mo Gilligan, the brand new entertainment series That’s My Jam (8 x 60) will be produced by Monkey, in with Universal International Studios and Universal Television Alternative Studio.
Debuting on BBC One and BBC iPlayer, That’s My Jam is based on the original US show hosted by Jimmy Fallon, which draws inspiration from the wildly popular musical segments on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Signature games from the US version include Launch The Mic, Air Guitar, Don’t Drop The Beat and Slay It, Don’t Spray It.
Mo Gilligan says: “It was such a thrill to work with Jimmy and his outstanding team on the pilot of this show - and now we get to do a series! This is such an exceptional format and I’m so honoured that the BBC and NBCUniversal are letting me bring it to the UK."
Kate Phillips, Director of Unscripted at the BBC, says: “With marvellous Mo Gilligan leading proceedings, That’s My Jam will see competitive celebrities facing off like never before, in a series of musical games guaranteed to provide a multitude of surprises and singalong moments!”
Ed Havard, SVP, Unscripted Programming for Universal International Studios, adds: “Working with Mo is always such a highlight. We had so much fun making an incredible pilot, and now we can’t wait to bring this hit format to BBC One and BBC iPlayer.”
With a whole host of celebrity guests (including Alesha Dixon and Michelle Visage), dance and trivia-based games, and unforgettable musical performances, That’s My Jam promises to take popular and well known songs to the next level like never before.
That's My Jam is due to begin this December on BBC One. Dates will be revealed in due course.
