FOX has renewed interactive music game show Beat Shazam for a third season. Jamie Foxx will return as host and executive producer for season three, along with his daughter Corinne as the show’s DJ.
“I am beyond excited that Beat Shazam is getting picked up for a third season,” said Foxx. “Huge thank you’s to our creator, Jeff Apploff, and to Mark Burnett and MGM, as well as the team at FOX for believing in us and giving us the opportunity to help change more peoples’ lives through our shared love of music.”
“Jamie Foxx is a one-of-a-kind entertainer who continues to bring his signature high energy and love of music to this show,” said Rob Wade, president of alternative entertainment and specials for FOX. “It really is great fun for the whole family – including Jamie and his daughter, Corinne, our resident deejay. Together with the brilliant Mark Burnett and Jeff Apploff, they have inspired contestants, audience members and viewers at home to play along, and we can’t wait to see the Beat Shazam band re-unite for Season Three.”
The game show was inspired by the popular music-centric app Shazam. The series pits contestants through multiple rounds of questions about popular songs for the chance to win $10,000 and a shot at the ultimate $1 million prize.
Beat Shazam is averaging three million multi-platform viewers and ranks among the summer’s Top 20 broadcast programs among Adults 18-49. It also is this summer’s most social broadcast game show with 19 million total engagements across all social channels.
