Channel 4 have commissioned two new music shows – including one presented by pop duo Rizzle Kicks.
Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw (pictured right) will host an hour-long music quiz titled That Music Show, reports BBC Newsbeat. Rizzle Kicks – Jordan Stephens and Harley Alexander-Sule – will host a programme called Smells Like Friday Night. Channel 4 says both shows will feature “stand-out live performances”.
That Music Show will reportedly be recorded in a well known music venue and combine a quiz with a gig, with Channel 4 promising the “newest to the biggest names in music”. Rizzle Kicks will share presenting duties with comedian Rob Beckett and presenter Billie JD Porter, fiancé of Peace frontman Harry Koisser.
Both shows have been green lit for pilots, and it’s hoped that full series will be commissioned after. Dominic Bird, Channel 4’s Head of Formats, said: “These two shows provide us with a great opportunity to put music back on the agenda.”
It was reported in March that Rizzle Kicks were planning to star in their own sitcom, but plans have since been scrapped.
