Spike TV will team with sister Viacom service Nickelodeon to produce a kids-themed spinoff of Spike’s popular Lip Sync Battle series, the networks announced Monday.
The special, Lip Sync Battle Jr., will offer a “fresh take” on Spike’s star-studded series and will celebrate kids’ love of music and comedy. While it will feature lip syncing battles made famous by its parent series, it’s unclear whether the special will feature celebrity-kids battling against each other.
In addition, other Viacom brands will develop special editions of Lip Sync Battle events, but Spike would not reveal specifics.
Lip Sync Battle is currently averaging more than 4 million viewers (Nielsen Live+7).
