Name That Tune to film in Sydney
World Exclusive: Iconic game show to be revived for US network, but filmed entirely in Australia with big US stars.
WORLD EXCLUSIVE: Music game show Name That Tune is being revived for a US network, but filmed in Australia.
Eureka TV will film episodes in front of an audience adhering to strict COVID protocols at the Aware Theatre, Sydney International Convention Centre from November 12 to December 3.
Contestants are all Americans living in Australia, and the show will have a live band, plus two yet-to-be named American hosts.
Sources suggest it will feature big name stars.
Name That Tune originally ran from 1953 to 1959 before being revived in the 1970s and 1980s.
It was also the very first game show made for Australian TV at TCN9 with pioneering host Bruce Gyngell.
Filming in Sydney sidesteps the ongoing COVID crisis in the US, but Australian audience members will have to follow strict guidelines, including temperature checks, PPE, social distancing, remaining in a designated audience Zone plus QR contact tracing information.
