“Little Big Stars” will premiere on Sunday, April 23rd at 8:15pm on German commercial channel SAT.1. The new variety series showcasing the most extraordinarily talented kids is recorded in the MMC Studios in Cologne, Germany.
Television host, entertainer and actor Thomas Gottschalk hosts “Little Big Stars”, a brand new series on SAT.1 based on the hit US format “Little Big Shots” created by Ellen DeGeneres and Steve Harvey.
“Little Big Stars” shines the spotlight on some of the world’s most talented kids. With no prizes at stake, no winners or losers and no competition, this program is simply a showcase for children to take to the stage and show that you don’t have to be a grown-up to be a star performer.
Host Thomas Gottschalk will chat, dance, play and laugh with these child prodigies, eliciting plenty of hilarious and heartwarming unscripted moments.
From mini gourmets, cheerleaders and BMX champions to dinosaur experts, physicists and piano virtuosos, these gifted performers will awe the nation with their talents, slay the audience with their cuteness and wow it with their accomplishments.
Produced by Warner Bros. International Television Production Deutschland for SAT.1, the series is recorded at MMC Studio 36 in Cologne, Germany. On behalf of Warner Bros., the MMC Studios are responsible for the technical production of the shows and MMC Studios’ Art Department is in charge of the set construction. Account manager Tobias Velmans supervises the production for MMC Studios.
The US version of “Little Big Stars” was the most watched new series of the US 2015-16 season. “Little Big Shots” was NBC’s most watched series of 2016, and was the number one unscripted series premiere in over 4 years on broadcast television. The second season is airing since March 5, 2017 on NBC.
