Plans drawn for Lat Am Lip Sync Battle

Formats-logo-460_2Lip-Sync-4Comedy Central Latin America and TV Azteca are to coproduce a 13x60mins version of Lip Sync Battle.

The new version, Lip Sync Mexico, will feature three celebrities miming along to popular music tracks, rather than the two in the US original.

It is currently in pre-production, with the show debuting on Comedy Central networks in Latin America and Mexican broadcaster TV Azteca later this year.

“We’re certain Lip Sync Mexico will meet our viewers’ expectations, who will enjoy lip sync battles between well-known Latin American talent as they compete to take home the coveted belt,” said Eduardo Lebrija, senior VP, entertainment brands, Comedy Central and Paramount Channel, Viacom International Media Networks Americas.

Distributor VIMN has now sold the format into 30 territories, with twelve currently confirmed to air or on air.

The US version, which was spun out a segment on Jimmy Fallon’s late night talk show, debuted in March 2015. It has been a ratings hit, and has sold into 120 territories.
