CBS is taking a global approach with its new competition series, unveiling an expansive list of experts from around the world who will help determine the winner of “The World’s Best.”
The group of celebrated international experts, who will be known as “the Wall of the World,” will join American judges Drew Barrymore, RuPaul Charles and Faith Hill in deciding the outcome of the global competition.
Hosted by James Corden, “The World’s Best” premieres Feb. 3, leading out from Super Bowl LIII.
The “Wall of the World” features renowned experts from every field of entertainment and every corner of the globe, CBS said.
“From Nigeria to Japan, from Switzerland to Samoa, our 50 world experts bring a true global presence to our stage,” said executive producer and showrunner Alison Holloway. “Among them are champions, award-winners, international TV judges and even superstars in their native lands. They are knowledgeable, honest and, at times, outrageous. They bring an entirely fresh perspective to the talent show landscape.”
