Germany’s Sat.1 tunes into Endemol Shine puppet & celebrity singing format
German FTA network Sat.1 has ordered a brand-new entertainment format from Endemol Shine Germany, which sees celebrities perform alongside puppets.
I Got You Babe is set to debut on Sat.1 with four episodes this autumn and will see quirky puppet characters singing a duet with famous faces.
However, the six featured puppets are set to be more than just a quirky gimmick and have powerful voices of their own, leaving the celebrities to put on a captivating performance if they want to win over the audience – and a three-person jury.
Each episode ends with the duets being judged by the panel, with one pair sent home and the eventual winners crowned in the finale.
Endemol Shine Germany is now part of European production and distribution giant Banijay, following the completion of the group’s takeover last month.
Last week, Marcus Wolter was appointed CEO of Banijay’s German operations, with Magnus Kastner, who had been CEO at Endemol Shine Germany since 2018, departing.
