The latest Fox’s singing competition series has also been the latest worldwide phenomenon of the industry and logically led to the commission of a second season and the high interest of many territories around the world. The US adaptation of the popular South Korean show “King of Mask Singer” began with 12 singing celebrities, one eliminated each week. The twist is now iconic: every celebrity contestant wears head-to-toe costumes, entirely concealing their identities from everyone and the jury in particular. It’s the first time a singing competition gathers a Hippo, a Pineapple, a Unicorn or a Peacock and this humoristic touch is one of the keys to success of the series, which is actually comparable to a comedy game. This session gathers the American and the South Korean producers of the show: they’ll share their production experience, their artistic differences, the challenges faced and what makes the future of this series so promising.
