NBC has placed a series order for a new hourlong competition series inspired by a segment on “The Tonight Show.” “That’s My Jam,” a celebrity music and variety game show, is executive produced by Jimmy Fallon and draws its inspiration from his “Wheel of Musical Impressions” segments.
The unscripted series has a 10-episode order from the network.
“We love playing these games on the show and it’ll be fun to see it taken to the next level,” said Fallon.
Added Meredith Ahr, president of the Alternative and Reality Group for NBC Entertainment: “Jimmy reinvented the late-night genre with his one-of-a-kind celebrity game segments that show our favorite stars at their most clever, creative and relaxed. We’re thrilled to bring viewers a new set of games and create a weekly party that is just as much fun to watch as it is to play along.”
The format was brought to Universal Television Alternative Studio by Fallon, longtime “Tonight Show” producer Jim Juvonen and writer Josh Knapp. Jeff Apploff will serve as showrunner.
