AXN airs 2 new shows; Scorpion and The Voice

AXN brings two new exciting shows, a high-voltage drama series, Scorpion airing every Friday, from 26th September at 11 pm and the fresh season of the most talked about singing reality show, The Voice from 27th September, airing every Saturday and Sunday at 8 pm.

Scorpion is based on a true story of Walter O’Brien – SUPER GENIUS, XTRAORDINARY PROTECTOR with the fourth-highest IQ ever measured at 197 (Einstein had an IQ of 165). O'Brien was diagnosed as a child prodigy and was arrested at the age of 9 for hacking NASA’s computer system. He went to the US on an “extraordinary ability” visa which was earlier given to extraordinary people like Albert Einstein and Winston Churchill. O'Brien’s hacker name was Scorpion.

Directed by Justin Lin of the 'Fast and The Furious' fame, Scorpion is based on real-life experiences of Walter O’Brien and focusses on a group of super-geniuses comprising of Walter and his team of brilliant misfits who help solve complex, global problems. As Homeland Security’s new think tank, O’Brien’s “Scorpion” team includes Toby Curtis (Eddie Kaye Thomas), an expert behaviourist who can read anyone; Happy Quinn (Jadyn Wong), a mechanical prodigy; and Sylvester Dodd (Ari Stidham), a statistics guru.

The U.S. series premiere of Scorpion on 22nd September 2014 delivered an impressive 14 million viewers and was number 1 in its time period. Scorpion’s audience out-performed last years’ time-period premiere by +66%. Scorpion also brought CBS its highest rated fall drama debut among key men and key adults since the HAWAII FIVE-0 series premiere in 2010.

Up next is the most glamorous singing reality TV show, ‘The Voice’. The Voice is an innovative format which has music icons as coaches who form their teams through blind auditions (without seeing the contestants).With the strongest vocalists from across the globe, the fresh season of The Voice will see “Happy” Hit maker Pharrell Williams and Pop Diva Gwen Stefani make their debut as the glamorous new coaches. The two music powerhouses & Grammy winners join veteran Voice coaches Adam Levine (two wins) and Blake Shelton (three wins) in the rotating red swivel chairs for the seventh season of this Emmy-winning program. To make things more interesting, AXN will be holding a ’Voice of Choice Contest’ ,  a watch and win contest which requires the viewer’s to answer questions about their favorite coach on the show.  With a new question every passing weekend, the viewers need to respond via SMS, Tweets or Facebook wall posts on the AXN India page to get close to the grand prize, where 2 lucky winners will get a chance to visit the sets of The Voice in LA.

The Voice first aired in 2011 and has since won various accolades including that of the Best Competition Reality Emmy 2013. It also received 10 Nominations for Emmy 2014 and won 4 awards at People’s Choice Awards & Teen Choice Awards in 2014.

Talking about the two new offerings, Saurabh Yagnik, Executive Vice-president and Business Head, Sony PIX & AXN India says, “We have a power-packed September on AXN with two dynamic show launches. While Scorpion is an inspiring story of the super genius, Walter O’Brien and his journey of ethical hacking, The Voice is among the most popular international reality shows on TV. We are delighted to have it back on our channel for its latest season. Reality shows are always welcomed by the Indian viewers and with Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams making their coaching debuts, Season 7 of The Voice will surely get even bigger.”
