Jamie Foxx is coming to prime-time in a new interactive game show titled, “Beat Shazam.” The series premieres on Thursday, May 25 at 8 p.m. EST on Fox.
During each episode, two teams will go ear-to-ear for the chance to Beat Shazam. In each round, Foxx will present a choice of two music categories, ranging from “’80s Favorites” to “Beyoncé Hits.” Teams will hear a song and try to identify its correct title before all the other teams. As the rounds progress, quicker pairs will continue building their banks, while players with the lowest dollar amount will be eliminated until only one team remains. That team will play man-versus-machine and attempt to Beat Shazam, the world’s most popular song identification app, for the chance to win a huge cash prize.
“Beat Shazam” was created by Jeff Apploff and is produced by Apploff Entertainment and MGM Television in association with Shazam. Foxx will also serve as executive producer alongside Mark Burnett, Jeff Apploff, Rich Riley and Lauren Zalaznick.
