First Look – Channel 4’s LEGO Masters

Channel 4 in the UK has released the first trailer for their upcoming LEGO Masters TV series. Very much patterned after the various cooking or home decor competitions you find on reality TV, this new show promises to be a very fun and creative look at how the teams face each week’s challenge.

The first episode airs August 24 at 8pm in the UK only. We can only hope that it will be available to watch in North America in some way.

The official for the description for the series reads:

Eight pairs of amateur fans will compete against each other building ambitious brick creations in new competition series LEGO MASTERS. The pairs of all ages ranging from 9 year old best friends to 40-something adult fans of LEGO – will have their creativity, construction skills and their imaginations put to the test in a battle to be crowned masters of the brick.

The series is hosted by radio DJ and TV presenter Melvin Odoom. Each programme tests a wide array of disciplines from the playful to the technical to the unexpected and judged by a pool of judges led by Matthew Ashton: a man who has made his passion his work as Vice President of Design for the LEGO Group. Joining Matthew in each round will be different expert judges from the fields of engineering, art and design and guest celebrity LEGO fans including Richard Osman, Bill Bailey and Dara O’Briain. In each programme, the teams who impress the most will progress to the next round until the finale, where just one pair will be named LEGO MASTERS.
