If you can dream it, you can build it. Nine today announced it has commissioned LEGO MASTERS®, where your only limitation is your imagination. Mind-blowing, brick-building brilliance will be on display, delivering family entertainment loaded with fun, action, drama and humour.
LEGO MASTERS will pit eight pairs of Brick heads against each other in a quest to impress with their creativity, design and flair, driven by their unparalleled passion for the possibilities that will start with a single LEGO brick.
LEGO MASTERS comes from producers Endemol Shine Australia, who brought you Australian Ninja Warrior, MasterChef Australia and Married at First Sight.
Casting for the program is now underway, with the search on for the country’s most passionate and creative LEGO builders.
Michael Healy, Director of Television for Nine, says, “We are excited that LEGO MASTERS will capture the imagination of all generations, delivering appointment family viewing.”
Mark Fennessy, CEO, Endemol Shine Australia, said: “LEGO MASTERS is pure, addictive family entertainment that all starts with a single brick. Together with our partners at Nine we’re super excited to bring this much-loved phenomenon to life - introducing a new world of extraordinary characters and mind-blowing creations.”
LEGO MASTERS will bring to life the universal appeal of LEGO and amplify it to create the biggest and funniest battle of the bricks Australia has ever seen.
Originally created by Tuesdays Child Television, LEGO MASTERS launched in the UK on Channel 4 in 2017, winning an average audience of 2 million viewers. The launch episode was the number one programme of the day, exceeding the primetime average by 68%. An extended second series will air on Channel 4 later this year.
Endemol Shine Group is the exclusive distributor of the format across all platforms outside of the U.K. and has the rights to produce local versions of the show around the world.
