“Lego Masters has everything you want in a reality-competition: an incredibly quirky and unique twist on a brand revered by billions of people, exciting team-based battles driven by creativity and a premise that’s ultra-family friendly,” Rob Wade, president of alternative at Fox, said. “It’s bold, fun and unlike anything else on television, and we’re thrilled to bring Lego Masters to American fans.”
The U..K-based “Lego Masters,” created by Tuesday’s Child for Channel 4, debuted in 2017. Endemol Shine North America’s Sharon Levy, DJ Nurre and Michael Heyerman will exec produce the new series, along with Tuesday’s Child’s Karen Smith and Steph Harris, and The Lego Group’s Jill Wilfert and Robert May. Endemol Shine previously produced season one of Fox’s “The Masked Singer,” and is also behind Fox’s “MasterChef” franchise and the upcoming drama “Almost Family.”
