Report: CBS planning new 'Name That Tune' TV show revival
UPI News Service, 10/11/2006
CBS, along with Planet Grande Productions, is planning a new spin on the 1950s game and variety show "Name That Tune."
With Donny Osmond slated to host, Daily Variety reported the new version of "Name That Tune" will be a hybrid of the formats of game and variety. The show will incorporate live musical performances with big cash bonus rounds of the familiar song guessing game.
A pilot of the new show has reportedly been ordered for December, with a decision expected shortly thereafter.
The new version of "Name That Tune" is expected to appeal to a wide variety of demographics and generations.
"It increases the variety of music we can do," Osmond said. "We can go from Sinatra to Hip hop to everything in-between."
Since its original 1950s version, "Name That Tune" was revived in the 1970s and again in the 1980s.
