Banijay Rights competition reality format LEGO Masters will be adapted in Japan by Tokyo Broadcasting System (TBS) - this is the third version to air in Asia following adaptations by MBC in South Korea and Shenzhen TV in China.
Production is currently underway for the show, which will see pairs compete against each other to wow judges with awesome inspiring designs and brick builds.
LEGO Masters is a firm hit globally, with this order following a recent coproduction between TV Markiza in Slovakia and TV Nova in the Czech Republic. The format has now been ordered by a total of 19 international broadcasters across Europe, the US, Australia and Asia. Originally created by Tuesday’s Child Television and the LEGO Group, Banijay globally distributes the format and finished tape for the show.
Michael Ebbesen, General Manager, LEGO Japan, said: “We are so excited that families in Japan will have an opportunity to enjoy this global phenomenon. LEGO Masters celebrates LEGO building at its very best – creative, ingenious, great teamwork and lots and lots of fun. We are looking forward to inspiring Japanese builders of all ages.”
