Under the deal, Kauble (pictured) will create original unscripted series and formats for the Los Angeles-based production label with a focus on developing new game and competition series for the domestic and international markets.
All projects will be produced via Kauble’s newly launched Interrobang Entertainment banner.
Kauble previously served as SVP of development at Apploff Entertainment, where he was co-executive producer of the first two seasons of the Fox shiny floor game show, hosted by Academy Award-winning actor Jamie Foxx.
Beat Shazam pits contestants against the popular music identification app in a twist on the “man vs. machine” trope. The format sees teams of two go up against each other in tests of their musical knowledge, and the team left standing competes against “the greatest musical mind on the planet.” Mark Burnett and MGM Television produce the series, alongside Apploff Entertainment.
Kauble’s production credits also include such international formats as Million Dollar Money Drop and Boom!in the U.S.
He is repped by Matt Horowitz at CAA.
“Wes has some great format ideas that we are already exploring for the U.S. market and hopefully can develop to take out globally, as well,” said Sharon Levy, president of unscripted and scripted television at Endemol Shine North America, in a statement.
