After months of preparations, Atresmedia revealed that the world’s most popular format will hit its screen on November 4.
Almost nine months after announcing it, Atresmedia revealed the premiere date of The Masked Singer, which will arrive on Antena 3 next Wednesday, November 4 at 10:45 p.m.
The Spanish version of the Korean phenomenon King of Masked Singer, by MBC, joins the multiple adaptations of the international music and mystery contest. In fact, it was the most adapted format in 2019 and is on track to repeat it in 2020.
Although it was born in South Korea, success came after its edition in the US (The Masked Singer on FOX), where it became the most watched show of the 2018/2019 season and the most successful premiere of a new format of the last seven years.
The Masked Singer was also a hit with audiences in countries such as Germany (Pro7), Holland (RTL4), France (TF1), United Kingdom (ITV), Italy (RAI 1), Mexico (Televisa) and Peru (Latina).
It also accumulates versions in Australia, Portugal, Finland, Austria, Hungary, Estonia, Czech Republic, Russia, Bulgaria, Indonesia, Vietnam, China, Romania, Lithuania, Belgium and Thailand. And soon it will arrive in Argentina, Sweden, Ukraine, Malaysia, Switzerland, Greece, Panama and South Africa.
ATRESMEDIA GOES BIG ON ENTERTAINMENT
The production of The Masked Singer, by Fremantle Spain, demonstrates Atresmedia’s strong commitment to large entertainment formats.
The format joins the family of titles that triumph internationally and that have seen the light on Antena 3, such as The Voice, Boom!, Ahora caigo, The Wheel of Fortune, the recently released Who wants to be millionaire? or Pasapalabra.
In addition to the formats that were born in Antena 3, such as Tu cara me suena or El Hormiguero 3.0.
Mask Singer will have Arturo Valls as master of ceremonies, and Malú, Javier Calvo, Javier Ambrossi and José Mota as investigators.
They will try to guess which famous person is under each of the 12 masks. At each gala, only the eliminated will reveal their identity.
The stage of the Spanish Mask Singer rises on a 1000 m2 set, with a large 300 m2 dressing room bunker, with a special maze-like design to avoid furtive glances and unexpected encounters, with almost 100 m2 of wardrobe.
