ABC Adds a Third Celebrity Competition Series THR
ABC is adding to its roster of celebrity competition shows with a series order for a third entry in the genre. The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed reports that the network has ordered "Sing Your Face Off," which will focus on five celebrities who each train to perform as a particular musical icon.
“The series, based on Endemol Spain's ‘Your Face Sounds Familiar,’ will feature celebrities -- who have yet to be cast -- taking on iconic musicians as they undergo hours of makeup, choreography and vocal coaching,” the piece reports. “Each episode will feature the complete physical transformation -- including the icon's walk, talk, mannerisms and more -- as the celebrities compete in front of judges and a studio audience.”
ABC also airs the celebrity competition shows "Dancing with the Stars" and "Splash." The network placed an order for six episodes of “Sing Your Face Off.”
“In addition to being tasked with a physical transformation, participating talent also will have to actually perform music from their assigned icon each week,” THR reports. “Participating celebs will transform to play -- and sing -- multiple musical performers during the series. Details on prizes still are being worked out.”
