Casey Patterson and Matador are scheduled to be the host of the show, and the program is set to telecast later this year on both Spike and Nickelodeon.
In addition to its sister stations, Viacom brands are also developing special editions of “Lip Sync Battle” events.
In a joint statement Executive Producers Casey Patterson and Jay Peterson state, “On the long list of wonderful surprises about Lip Sync Battle is our family co-viewing. Lip Sync Battle’s multigenerational appeal is our favorite part of the show and the whole Lip Sync Battle family is very excited about developing a new music based, comedy variety format to showcase how much our Lip Sync Battle kids rock! It’s all the fun of Lip Sync Battle, only smaller. “Lip Sync Battle Jr.” will celebrate kids’ love of music and comedy featuring the battles viewers have come to know and love with new variety elements designed to let the little ones shine. The series will be a fresh take on Spike’s star-studded series.”
The UK version launched January 9 on Viacom’s Channel 5 and was the top-rated show in the 16-34 demographic in the time period.
“Lip Sync Battle” can be seen in over 130 countries and territories worldwide.
Spike TV is available in 91.4 million homes and is a division of Viacom Media Networks.
