'I Can Do That' Premiere on NBC
NBC set premiere date for new show 'I Can Do That' to Tuesday, May 26 (10-11 p.m.). 'I Can Do That' will have 'America's Got Talent' as its Tuesday lead-in.
In this variety format, America's entertainers will come together to compete and showcase their talent. Each week, a group of six celebrities perform unique acts to prove to the audience that "they can do that!" In each episode, we will see current top music and variety groups. During each performance, the eight celebrities enter a friendly rivalry as they choose their favorite act, what they think they can master, and who they would pair up with to master the act. Unlike most talent shows, there are no judges or eliminations, it's all for bragging rights.
Comedian-actor-producer Marlon Wayans will serve as host. Celebrities participating are acclaimed dancer and choreographer Cheryl Burke, superstar recording artists Joe Jonas, Nicole Scherzinger and Ciara, national standup comedian Jeff Dye and actor Alan Ritchson.
The series is a Universal Television production. Audrey Morrissey ('The Voice') and Matilda Zoltowski ('Dancing with the Stars') serve as executive producers. Rick Alvarez, Avi Armoza, Nehama Cohen, Elwin De Groot, Steve Harris and Marlon Wayans also executive produce.
The format is distributed globally by Armoza Formats. Recently Banijay-owned Nordisk Film has acquired rights to the format in Sweden, Denmark and Norway. 'I Can Do That' was already licensed in Finland by MTV Oy. In addition, the show re-launched its 2nd season in April on Italy's RAI1.
