“Lego Masters” is crossing the pond.
The British reality competition series has already inspired an Australian edition, and now it’s headed stateside. Fox has ordered “Lego Masters” for an unspecified number of episodes, THR reports. The project is produced by Endemol Shine North America and Brad Pitt’s Plan B.
“Lego Masters” is “bold, fun and unlike anything else of television,” according to Rob Wade, Fox’s president of alternative entertainment. It pits teams of two against each other in Lego-building challenges. Ultimately, the top teams face each other and compete for the trophy.
“‘Lego Masters’ has everything you want in a reality competition: an incredibly quirky and unique twist on a brand revered by billions of people, exciting team-based battles driven by creativity and a premise that’s ultra-family friendly,” Wade said, per THR.
The show was created by the production company Tuesday’s Child and has aired two seasons so far in the U.K. Meanwhile, the Australian version premiered in April. Both have had solid ratings, hence the decision to bring it to North America.
Karen Smith and Steph Harris of Tuesday’s Child will executive produce the U.S. version alongside Endemol Shine North America’s Sharon Levy, DJ Nurre, and Michael Heyerman, and The Lego Group’s Jill Wilfert and Robert May. Fox has not yet announced a release date for “Lego Masters,” but the fun is coming.
