Fox has greenlit another round of reality-competish series “Don’t Forget the Lyrics,” from RDF USA.
Pickup comes after the RDF Rights distrib unit sold the show in 10 overseas markets, including a pact with U.K.’s Sky One.
“Lyrics,” which tests contestants’ knowledge of song lyrics as they vie for the top $1 million prize, is the first homegrown RDF USA show to secure international format licensing. RDF USA got its toehold domestically by adapting formats, such as ABC’s “Wife Swap,” controlled by its U.K. parent, RDF Media.
Sky One and Australian’s Ten Network are among the foreign outlets that have also picked up rerun rights to the existing Fox segs.
Series, hosted in the U.S. by Wayne Brady, has been a solid performer for Fox since its debut in July. Domestic edition of “Lyrics” is produced by RDF USA and Brad Lachman Prods. Exec producers are Jeff Apploff, Chris Coelen, Greg Goldman and Lachman.
