Award-winning actor, singer and comedian Jamie Foxx will make his return as host and executive producer of the hit interactive music game show Beat Shazam alongside his daughter, producer and activist Corinne Foxx, who will return as co-host and deejay. The series, produced by Apploff Entertainment, MGM Alternative Television and BiggerStage in association with Shazam, kicks off Season Seven on Tuesday, May 28 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX and will stream on Hulu.

“Jamie and Corinne are the heart and soul of Beat Shazam,” said Allison Wallach, FOX Entertainment’s President of Unscripted Entertainment. “As our undeniably dynamic father-daughter hosting team, they bring a relationship like no other to a show like no other, and it’s wonderful having them back on set this season.”

Beat Shazam is an interactive game show that pits teams of two against the clock and each other, as they attempt to identify the biggest hit songs of all time. In the end, the team with the most money banked will outlast the competition and go against Shazam, the world’s most popular song identification app, for the chance to win $1 million dollars. Over the course of its six previous seasons, the show has given away more than $10 million dollars. This season, the series will have special themed episodes that include teams of fathers, siblings, teachers, heroes and mothers – all battling it out to win the prize of a lifetime.

Beat Shazam was created by Jeff Apploff and Wes Kauble, and is produced by Apploff Entertainment, MGM Alternative Television and BiggerStage in association with Shazam. Apploff, Mark Burnett, Barry Poznick, Lauren Zalaznick, Pat Kiely, Sean O’Riordan and Jamie Foxx serve as executive producers.
