Spike and Nickelodeon are working on a children's television program called "Lip Sync Battle Jr.," a spinoff of the buzzy celebrity sing-along show "Lip Sync Battle."
A special edition of the performance-competition show for youngsters will air later this year on both networks before "Jr." becomes a series.
"On the long list of wonderful surprises about Lip Sync Battle is our family co-viewing," executive producers Casey Patterson and Jay Peterson said in a joint statement Monday.
"'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."
LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen host the adult version of the show. No emcees for the kids' edition have been announced yet.
