Fox's two-hour celebrity diving special "Stars in Danger: The High Dive," set to air Jan. 9, has tapped television presenters Kyle Martino and Becky Baeling to host, reports Deadline.com.
The special, based on a German format, got the go-ahead from Fox soon after ABC ordered a similarly themed series, “Celebrity Diving,” which is set to debut March 19, the piece notes.
The Fox special will feature Olympic diving medalist Troy Dumais, who will provide commentary. The celebrity cast includes JWoww of "Jersey Shore" and former NFL star Terrell Owens, the report adds.
“After an intense training period, the eight celebrities in ‘Stars In Danger’ will compete in a series of Olympic-style dives, including solo high diving and synchronized diving, from a variety of heights,” the piece reports. “Martino is a retired professional soccer player who works as a TV soccer color analyst. Baeling is an actress/TV host/singer.”
