I Can Do That, the new NBC comedy variety series featuring some of Hollywood’s top celebrities, will debut in the season’s first premiere tonight. I Can Do That debuts for the first time right after the 10th season premiere of America’s Got Talent. The NBC TV show stars celebrity talent: Cheryl Burke, Ciara, Jeff Dye, Joe Jonas, Alan Ritchson, Nicole Scherzinger, and Marlon Wayans as the host.
Developed by the Armoza Formats of Israel and produced by Universal Television, the new comedy and variety series will give six Hollywood celebrities the chance to show off their talent and skills in front of a live audience. According to the Hollywood Reporter, all six celebrities will perform a variety of skills such as singing, dancing, and performing magic tricks, as well as other exciting acts including hooping (Harlem Globetrotters), showing discipline in agility and balance, trapeze-like acts, acrobatics, martial arts, and other stunts. The stars will pair up each week without knowing who their partner will be or the act they will perform. The NBC game-variety show promises to push the celeb duos out of their comfort zone, in order to learn new skill sets that will be performed in front of a live audience. More than that, these already highly accomplished celebs will be provoked to face new challenges and inspire them to do things that they never thought they would be able to do — while at the same time entertaining the audience and keeping them on the edge of their seats.
From there, the audience will choose which act they like the best, according to first place, second place, and third place. Every week, each couple will train for the entire week for the new skill. Comedian Marlon Wayans of In Living Color and Scary Movie 2 is a fun, cool host that will introduce each act.
During the season finale, only one star will be chosen as the winner. I Can Do That producers hope to attach themselves to the reality show craze — but with a retro twist by bringing back the game show/variety show format that was so popular in the 1970s and 1980s. In addition to the U.S. show, I Can Do That is currently being produced in 15 other countries, according to NBC.
